The first major project of Eugene Difficult Music Ensemble.

Presented in collaboration with Eugene Contemporary Art.

Featuring guest artist Emma Rose Lynn.

The Eugene Garbage Project is an experimental sound/music multimedia work that will promote environmental awareness by transforming local trash into a concert-length work for voice, live electronic sound manipulation, and interactive video. In so doing, we call into question preconceptions of “disposable” items by reusing them towards creative ends.

Starting in the fall, we will collect trash at public art events in the Eugene area, including art walks, while also providing free mini-concerts and lectures at local high schools. Then we will photograph and record sounds with the garbage and transform that into visuals and audio. These will be programmed to react to a motion-capture device.


The final concert will take place at Eugene Contemporary Art's space ANTI-AESTHETIC on May 7, 2021 and streamed live!
