Research Results: 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering by Clarisse Bardiot  

Each year, the Researchers in Residence Grant Program allows the Foundation to offer two researchers the chance to work at its Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) and explore its fonds and collections. Clarisse Bardiot (Ph.D.) was a resident at the CR+D in 2005 and focused her research primarily on the 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering fonds. A result of her research, this Web publication explores the technological aspects of the festival presented in New York in 1966, which brought together 10 artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, Lucinda Childs, and many others, as well as some 30 engineers from Bell Telephone Laboratories (Murray Hill, N.J., U.S.). Ms. Bardiot's project hinges on the diagrams produced by engineer Herb Schneider. In the publication, she offers an analysis of their content by comparing them to visual material (notably the factual footage produced by Alfons Schilling), eyewitness accounts of the festival, and archival documents:
