May 2 @ 4:00 pm - July 1 @ 6:00 pm
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (Oakland)
Inspired by the Library’s unique collection of electronic instruments, as well as its historic Pittsburgh Sheet Music Collection, CMU students have created a series of sound and animation installations celebrating various locales around the City. Taking four pieces of sheet music as inspiration (The Iron Horse Etude, South Side Polka, Shady Side Mazurka, and The Carnegie Library March) each project mixes snippets of these songs with current day site-specific recordings and synthesized sounds to create sonic genealogies, juxtaposing Pittsburgh’s past and present.
Animated Soundscapes is a collaborative investigation between Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Art and School of Music courses Real-Time Animation and Experimental Sound Synthesis, IDeATe (Integrative Design, Arts, and Technology) network, and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (Oakland) to explore content of the library’s special collections and architectural design through immersive media and site-specific sound installation.
This exhibition takes place in the Library’s North Wing Music Room.
