Blake Carrington Cathedral Scan CD Release Concert
Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral
263 Mulberry Street (enter on Mott St. btw Prince/Houston, map)
Thursday March 3, 2011
Doors 7:00pm, Show 7:20pm
$7 Suggested donation

Also featuring special audiovisual performances by Mark Cetilia (of Mem1) and Kamran Sadeghi.

Cathedral Scan translates the architectural plans of Gothic cathedrals into open-ended musical scores via custom software. Treating the plans as a map, in the live performance Carrington navigates through them to create diverse rhythms, drones and textures. Visually, the scanning suggests a metaphor between architecture and ghost-like palimpsest. The concert at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral will feature large-scale projection and sound performed specifically for the venue's impressive acoustics.

The full-length album is edited from a previous live concert in a large church, and combines the direct signal created in software with the immense natural reverberation of the performance space. Published by Dragon’s Eye Recordings.
