steady state / transient flow is a sound and performance installation consisting of water-driven sound instruments created by John Eagle (D.M.A. '24). The instruments, connected in one continuous water cycle, create a physical environment which determines the sonic behavior. Using pipes, tubing, valves, rocks, bottles, containers, and electronic sound components, the installation creates a variable water flow and produces an electroacoustic sound environment. The dynamics of the system, along with the interventions of performers at times, create different types of flow over time. Eagle is joined by musicians Emily Call and Ford Fourqurean to perform with the installation throughout the week. 

Short performances will occur daily at 12:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. except for Tuesday, April 11, which will include a short performance at 12:30 p.m. and a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. with refreshments. A longer performance will begin at 5:30 p.m. during the reception. 

This exhibition is funded in part by the Cornell Council for the Arts, the Cornell Department of Music, with additional support by the Cornell Electroacoustic Music Center.
