ABOUT THIS PERFORMANCE
For this performance, each member of the ensemble will played note only, one at a time, to create a collective emergent ambient synth drone soundscape filled with continuous notes, tone clusters, movement, and dynamics.

This immersive popup experience was live mixed through a four speaker system with a sub and feature supporting ambient lighting effects. The mix and panning were done by the performers in real-time as a result of the ensemble actively listening and adjusting.

Behind the Scenes -- Carbon Dioxide Ensemble at Time + Space Fundraiser for Process/Reversal

Process Reversal advocates and ensures the viability of film for all.

In a time of discontinued film stocks, disenfranchised cinemas and abandoned laboratories, filmmaking is changing. The old infrastructures have collapsed, giving us a unique opportunity; a chance to reinvent the medium. Process Reversal is an engine for exploring new ways of seeing, new ways of hearing, and new ways of speaking about film. It is the response of a vibrant community of artists and practitioners that are taking on the opportunity and the challenge of a new century for photochemical arts.

Organization

Process Reversal is a federally recognized, tax exempt 501(c)(3 charity,  a volunteer-run organization operating on a collective model of sharing duties and responsibilities.
