Moren to Host Album Release Listening Party

Faculty member Ben Moren will be hosting an album listening night for his upcoming release Singing Ice.

This is his first formal sound/music project and something he spent a lot of the pandemic putting together while in isolation and traveling up north when able. 

The listening will be accompanied by some new video/projection work he has been working on over the past few months and it'll be the first time that work will be shown in any capacity too.

Recorded near and performed inside of a small cabin on Burntside Lake near Ely, Minnesota in the early winter of 2020. Field recordings of singing ice; fracturing ice sending reverberating sounds across a frozen lake, serve as the acoustic foundation of the album. Leveraging physical modeling resonators, responsive synth tones, and other sampling strategies; the resulting soundscapes invite you on a journey across thin ice, and under the surface.
