Carmine Cella: New Sounds
Available to the general public as livestream only. UC Berkeley students may attend in person with valid Cal One ID.
To complete a lecture series that begins with the most material of creative endeavors, our body tissues, Carmine Cella shares his compositions and musical instrument innovations, which produce novel sounds, music, and spatial experiences. While these experiments represent perhaps the most abstract form of creativity, they nevertheless have the potential to resonate with our innermost tissues, and therefore allow us to feel in ways we have never felt before.
Cella is an assistant professor for music at the Center for New Music and Acoustic Technologies (CNMAT) at UC Berkeley. He has written many music apps and created novel musical instruments, including the Augmented Piano.
