Sabisha Friedberg: The Hant Variance

Sabisha Friedberg presents a live mix of the third and final movement of The Hant Variance as a quadraphonic experiential piece. Originally recorded with Peter Edwards in a custom-tuned environment at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC), advanced multi-channel recording techniques were used to capture a precise configuration of spatialized sound sources. This finale, the most symphonic in it construction and melancholic in its tonality, is the resolution to the first two movements, released by ISSUE Project Room as a double LP, The Hant Variance, in February 2015.

$30 ticket includes free entry with purchase of 2xLP The Hant Variance, records will be delivered at the event.

Born in Johannesburg South Africa, Sabisha Friedberg’s composition, performance and installation work draws on the phenomenological and phantasmagorical, exploring perceptual delineation of space through sound, and low-end experiential thresholds. She has performed and presented installations widely in Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, Japan, and the US, and recently received commissions through residencies at ISSUE Project Room, EMPAC, and The Clocktower Gallery. In 2013 she presented the solo exhibition “Levitation” at Audio Visual Arts and in 2014 presented the solo exhibition/installation Strange Cloak: Sub-Flight Infinity at EMPAC. Friedberg received her MFA from Bard College following undergraduate studies at San Francisco Art Institute.
