Excerpts: RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, (Sound Characters Series 1998 – )
Multi-Channel Installation/Performance

Maryanne Amacher (New York) became intensively involved with electronic music in the early ’60s, while studying with Karlheinz Stockhausen. She worked with John Cage and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, among others, realized numerous sound installations and, in recent years, has increasingly been incorporating multimedia elements into her work. In many pieces, she experiments with especially high tones, which elicit in listeners an effect that she describes as “Third Ear Music”. In her installations, Amacher reaches for new forms of spatial and sound architecture, developing, for the most part, site-specific compositions. The multisensory experience of the listener / viewer is at the center of Maryanne Amacher’s work. And the presentation of excerpts from “RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT” in Villa Elisabeth’s main hall also aims for a new, unexpected experience of space. Says Amacher, “The rooms themselves will become loudspeakers whose sounds can be heard as well as experienced in the body.”
