Dafna Naphtali is a performer/composer, electronic musician, vocalist, sound artist and 2023 Guggenheim Fellow. Her projects include Audio Chandelier (multi-channel “speaker orchestra” installations and performances), {KALEID-O-PHONE} -- her many performance ensembles with live sound processing, and a series of Audio Augmented Reality soundwalks in New York and Germany.

Her talk will focus on the aesthetics and implications of live processing of sound in performance, (including multi-channel sound performances) with examples from her own projects and software and the work of others. She will draw on her chapter (What if Your Instrument is Invisible?) in the book “Musical Instruments in the 21st Century”, as well as her blog posts for New Music Box. Naphtali is currently working on her octet project (DUOS++) and a book on the aesthetics of real-time sound processing and improvisation and her use of real-time processing as an instrument for performance and improvisation over the past 25+ years.
