Event Details:

The Anderson Collection presents nine student intermedia projects from undergraduate seminar Music123i/ArtStudi123i: Music, Art, and Intermedia co-taught by Jaroslaw Kapuscinski and Julie Zhu.   Roaming performances inspired by the artwork at the Anderson will be put on by students and artistic collaborators Sarah Grace Graves (voice) and Matt Ingalls (clarinet).  The public is invited to witness and possibly even participate in these artistic interventions!

Sarah Grace Graves is a singer, composer, and improviser externalizing an internal sensory landscape through wordless sounds and charged silence. From 2020-2022 she was artist-in-residence at the Fondation des États-Unis in Paris, conducting a residency project on interdisciplinary collaboration with the voice while studying extended vocal techniques with Nicholas Isherwood at Conservatoire de Montbéliard. In 2022, she received the Michiko Hirayama Scholarship to develop a site-specific performance in honor of Hirayama in July 2023 at the Fondazione Isabella Scelsi in Rome. Her collaborators and co-conspirators include EXAUDI, Carol Robinson, Radical 2, Helēna Sorokina, Julie Zhu, Lorin Benedict, and the Italian new vocal music ensemble Fragmente. She is currently in the composition PhD program at UC Berkeley.

Matt Ingalls is a composer, clarinetist, concert producer, and computer music programmer from Oakland. His solo improvisations explore extended clarinet techniques that interact with the acoustic space, often as combination tones. He also performs notated music, and has worked with a diverse range of composers such as Mark Applebaum, Anthony Braxton, Sylvano Bussotti, Helmut Lachenmann, George Lewis, Miya Masaoka, Pauline Oliveros, Stefano Scodanibbio, Ken Ueno, and numerous Bay Area composers.

Matt has written compositions for acoustic instruments, voices, computer generated tape, interactive electronics, dance, theater, and freely improvising big band. He received the Deuxiéme Prix (Catégorie Humour - Puy) in the 1994 Concours International de Musique Electroacoustique de Bourges and was the first recipient of the ASCAP/SEAMUS Commission and Recording Prize. Matt is also well known for his computer music software, most notably the Soundflower audio routing macOS extension he created for cycling74. His Csound version for Macintosh, MacCsound won an Electronic Musician Magazine Editor's Choice Award. He is currently software engineering lead at 8dio, developing the SOUNDPAINT sampler engine.

Matt is the founder and co-director of sfSound, a new music series, ensemble, and internet radio station devoted to new ideas and traditions of experimental music, performance art, live electronic music, 

Bay Area composition, and the various facets of contemporary improvisation. sfSound is the umbrella organization of the San Francisco Tape Music Collective/Festival and the MOSSWOOD SOUND SERIES in Oakland.
