An electro-acoustic work by a UAB Music professor will be featured in a digital landscape installation in Portugal. The work is “2 Days in the Tank,” by Assistant Professor of Music William Price, D.M.A. It will be part of a sound installation titled “Sound Walk / Sound Garden,” which will be held at the Goethe-Institut Garden in Lisbon as part of the 2012 Música Viva Festival. Price’s work was selected from an open call for electroacoustic works to composers around the world.
“2 Days in the Tank” is one of 25 compositions that will be featured; this marks the fifth year for the installation at the festival. Opening on the first of October, the 10-day installation will allow festival visitors to immerse themselves in various digital soundscapes; this year’s theme is “sound-text composition,” Price says. The festival is sponsored by Miso Music Portugal and the Portuguese Music Research and Information Center.
