An Evening with C. Spencer Yeh

Monday, June 30, 2014, 7:00 p.m.
Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

C. Spencer Yeh (b. 1975, Taipei, Taiwan) works in and in between the realms of composition, experimental music, film, and visual arts, both as a practitioner and a curator of events and artistic collaborations. As a former student of radio/television/film at Northwestern University, Yeh seeks and probes instances in which the sonic (or vocal) and visual (or tangible) intersect in both typical and unexpected ways. An example of the artist's continued analysis of how visual and sonic languages are built are his voice-based performances, for which Yeh creates sounds that complicate the relationships between psycho-physiological and mechanical elements of sound production and perception. At MoMA, Yeh will premiere a new performance and present a selection of film trailers, custom-edited for Spectacle Theater in Willamsburg, Brooklyn, where he volunteers as programmer and trailer editor.
