in music composition from the Eastman School of Music and Yale University where his principle teachers were Joseph Schwantner Warren Benson Samuel Adler and Jacob Druckman He currently resides in New York where he is a reference librarian at The Juilliard School Impossible Spaces Sylvia Pengilly video and music Impossible Spaces consists of three short videos based on distortions of familiar shapes as they might appear within one of the Calabi Yau spaces These spaces are extremely small and impossibly twisted six dimensional spaces that emerged from the mathematics of Superstring theory Some possible shapes for these spaces are described and even illustrated in Brian Greene s fascinating book The Elegant Universe and the resemblance between Greene s drawings and the shapes that were currently being created in my video software was striking Itherefore chose three familiar shapes cubic conical and concentric for the basis of each of the three videos distorting them as far as the software would allow The music is derived from the visual images as they move through time mapping digital visual information pixels onto digital audio based on Cartesian coordinates color and density Thus changes in the shape and position color and density of the video images are reflected in changes of pitch panning and rhythmic activity in the music Sylvia Pengilly has always been fascinated by the correlation between what the ear hears and what the eye sees Because of this many of her works integrate both musical and visual elements Mathematics and physics including Chaos Theory Quantum Mechanics and Superstrings are of particular interest and frequently provide the basis for her works These have been presented both nationally and worldwide at several festivals including many SEAMUS

keep us from meaningful focused work than with More Irrelevant Facts That Will insert exaggerated emotional response here This composition acts as a metaphor for all topical Internet content presented as a list of random nonsensical bullet points designed to hold fleeting attentions Coincidentally most content from these Internet posts and feeds are also transient in cultural relevance These heart felt stories memes or pop culture references fade into irrelevance within weeks of their inception as new topics vie for significance Fortunately the popularity of numbered lists may soon grow tiresome and the purpose of this composition will become as transitory as the subject it examines Cody Kauhl is a composer and multimedia artist that investigates the hidden musical potential of urban
