Description

Steve Parker's BAT/MAN is an experimental musical work for an ensemble of bats and humans. Performed near the Mexican Free-Tailed Bat colony at Congress Bridge, the project will pitch-shift bat calls in real time so they are discernible to the human ear, while the roving audience can accompany the calls with echo-location devices, accompanied by conch shell ensemble, a megaphone choir, and a funnel horn band.

Echo-location devices will be handmade by participants in a series of community workshops leading up to the event. The workshops will provide an opportunity for students from Austin Soundwaves and East Austin College prep to learn about the Mexican Free-Tailed Bat, explore live audio manipulation, and the musical potential of circuit manipulation.
