Experimental physicist Carl Haber restores antique audio recordings too old, fragile, or damaged to be otherwise replayed—including recordings made in wax, soot, and foil. Using optical scanning technologies from his work at CERN in Switzerland, Haber has recovered and preserved a diverse collection of deteriorating sonic artifacts, voices from the past that otherwise would have been lost.

Baltimore-based musician and composer Dan Deacon hooks listeners with strong melodic lines, immersed in a sea of competing rhythmic structures, distorted sound samples, and synthesized and acoustic textures. His Resonance performance at the Exploratorium featured the Disklavier, an electronic version of the player-piano. Deacon is influenced by the work of composer Conlon Nancarrow, who pioneered the use of player-pianos to explore music unplayable by human hands.

Inspired by the works of Bob Miller (1935–2007), natural philosopher, light artist, and Exploratorium icon, Actual Reality invites us to wade into a sea of images and sounds and, through attention, catch slippery, individual moments of reality. During this multimedia performance, a video recreating one of Miller’s “Light Walks”—outdoor explorations of sunlight resolving into images through both naturally occurring pinholes and ingenious props—flows behind musicians improvising from a simple, expansive score. Through a combination of live performance and technological interventions—including a heliostat prototype Miller originally used for tracking the sun—lucky dragons playfully resolves these visual and aural streams into unique experiences of repeating elements. Actual Reality is presented in conjunction with "Light Walk: The Work of Bob Miller," an exhibition at the San Francisco Public Library on view through February 5, 2014. lucky dragons is an ongoing collaboration between Los Angeles–based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. Active since 2000, lucky dragons is known for an open and participatory approach to making music, radically inclusive live shows, and playful, humanistic use of digital tools. luckydragons.org
