Supreme Connections presents Maryanne Amacher's 'Mini Sound Series'

Premiere Sonic Acts Festival 24 February 2017 Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, NL

Sonic Acts and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam commissioned Supreme Connections to create a new interpretive, episodic iteration of Maryanne Amacher's Mini Sound Series. Amacher (1938–2009) was a pioneering American composer known for impressive architecturally staged sound works and groundbreaking research-based acoustic art designed to awaken our psycho-acoustic responses to sound. Supreme Connections is a loose formation of former Maryanne Amacher collaborators. The line-up for Sonic Acts consists of the composers, musicians and researchers Amy Cimini, Bill Dietz, Kabir Carter, Keiko Prince, Sergei Tcherepnin, Stefan Tcherepnin and Woody Sullender. They joined forces in 2012 to engage with issues associated with the posthumous life of Amacher work. Under the name Supreme Connections (the top secret lab featured in Amacher's unrealised treatment, Intelligent Life) they developed an approach to the artist’s radical oeuvre, respecting its complex conception. Recreating Amacher's methodology instead of incongruously faithful reenactments, Supreme Connections has created a series of large-scale ‘hearing as if’ installations at the Funkhaus (Berlin), Tate Modern, and in the Bienal de São Paulo.
