 9 Evenings Reconsidered at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery (Montreal)
Through its financial support and the loan of artifacts from its collection, the Foundation has made possible the presentation in Montreal of the exhibition 9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre, and Engineering, 1966.

Originally presented at the MIT List Visual Center (Cambridge, MA, U.S.) in 2006, 9 Evenings Reconsidered: Art, Theatre, and Engineering, 1966 will be featured at Concordia University’s Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery from March 9 to April 21, 2007.

Organized by independent curator Catherine Morris, the exhibition will showcase extensive archival material associated with this event and offer various viewpoints of the 10 performances presented at the 69th Regiment Armory in 1966. The Foundation has loaned a number of objects and materials from its 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds to the exhibition, including, among others, a sample of the factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling, stage props, technological components, and technical drawings by engineer Fred Waldhauer. 

Conferences and round table discussions will also be held during the 9 Evenings Reconsidered exhibition. An illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.For more information, please consult the Web site of the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery: http://ellengallery.concordia.ca/

 Digitized documents in the 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds
Digitized versions of documents pertaining to the engineer Fred Waldhauer in the 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds are accessible on the Foundation's CR+D web site.

For 9 Evenings, Waldhauer created the Proportional Control System (P.C.S.) used by David Tudor in Bandoneon! (a combine). This interface was comprised of a plotting board, 16 receivers and an electronic pen to allow numerous components in the Armory to be remotely controlled. Notably, Tudor used the device to spatialize the sound tracks and adjust the volume from one speaker to another. [More...]
