The Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY, will be hosting Harald Bode: Tone Color – Known and unknown sounds from November 6th 2011 to February 19th 2012 in the Project Space. An opening will be held on November 18th from 5:30-7:30 pm.

Harald Bode (1909-1987), was a German engineer and pioneering designer of electronic musical instruments and audio tools. The tools that he created altered the sounds that we hear every day. Through leading innovations that modulate the electronic processing of sound, he created sounds that never existed previously. We will be better able to understand the auditory environment that surrounds us by this rare look at his development methods and the equipment he used, and by hearing the sounds he generated.

This show has been possible thanks to a collaboration between the IEA, the staff at the Burchfield Penney Art Center including Don Metz, the efforts of Rebekkah Palov and Caspar Abocab, any many others.
