Biology Seminar: Cammie Lesser, M.D./Ph.D.

Dr. Lesser is an associate professor of medicine in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Harvard Medical School.

Research Summary: Many Gram-negative bacteria, including pathogens and endosymbionts, directly usurp eukaryotic host cell processes to promote their own survival and spread by injecting tens of proteins directly into host cells using complex secretion systems. The Lesser lab focuses on identifying the secreted substrates and determining their roles in pathogenesis, particularly of type 3 secretion systems, which are common to gastrointestinal pathogens. For these studies, they pioneered the development of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model system for studying mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis, and they developed a novel and powerful assay for studying protein-protein interactions in live cells, the Protein Interaction Platform assay. These studies have not only provided new insights into bacterial and host cell biology but have also identified new avenues for the development of novel antimicrobial agents.

Poetry Reading by Buddhist Religious Adviser Mark Hart

Fayerweather Hall, Pruyne Lecture Hall

Mark Hart, Buddhist religious adviser at Amherst College, will read from his recently published collection of poetry, "Boy Singing to Cattle." His book won the Pearl Poetry Prize for 2013 and is available form Pearl Editions in Long Beach, Calif.

Andrea Carter Brown, judge for the contest, wrote this about the book: "'Boy Singing to Cattle' is at once a moving elegy for a lost parent, a portrait of a way of life, and of the landscape and community tied to it, and a reconciliation with that past. It is remarkable for its wisdom, for the generosity of its spirit. These poems continue to haunt me-- in their grittiness, their loveliness, their eloquence; for the heart which informs every poem. 'Boy Singing to Cattle' renews and refreshes the tradition of poetry about the land and those who live from it in ways I would not have thought possible in the 21st century."

About the pieces and the artists:

"George Cheney and the Amherst Old Folks: Community Singing and the College’s First Music Professor"
By Tim Eriksen '88
A selection of early American hymns that the college's first music instructor led at concerts involving both students and local residents 150 years ago.

Tim Eriksen is acclaimed for transforming American tradition with his startling interpretations of old songs from New England and Southern Appalachia. He combines hair-raising vocals with inventive accompaniment on banjo, fiddle, guitar and bajo sexto-- a 12-string Mexican acoustic bass --creating a distinctive hardcore Americana sound that ranges from the bare bones of solo unaccompanied singing to the lush, multilayered arrangements on on his album "Josh Billings Voyage."

"Rim light"
Text by Wendy Woodson
Sound design by Jake Meginsky and Wendy Woodson

"Secret Beach"
Two-channel installation. Steel, transducers, low-frequency audio loop.
By Jake Meginsky

“A point beats in your breast: your heart.
A point beats for your hand: your pulse.
A point beats in space. Listen.”
--Edmond Jabès

I grew up next to an interstate highway. Climbing into the underpass as a child, I could place my head close to the highway foundation to listen as the passing vehicles set the Interstate into vibration like a string. With my head surrounded by the dynamic oscillations of massive amounts of metal and concrete, a distant truck could excite the empty roadway into a beautiful, shimmering microtonal drone, as complex and musical as anything I had ever heard. This formative listening experience helped to birth and nurture what would become a central idea in my development as a musician: the notion that inside all physical materials exists a frozen sound potential. With "Secret Beach," I am attempting to recapture and formalize this early aesthetic experience.

Low-frequency vibration is transferred to the steel sheets through the transducers. The resonant frequencies of the steel sheets reinforce themselves as sound waves travel inside the material. As sounds collide, the waveforms of each frequency alternately reinforce and inhibit themselves. If you listen along the surface of the sheets, certain areas contain patches of higher volume as these collisions create standing waves, while other areas of the surface suddenly drop in volume as juxtaposed waves cancel each other out. The piece is meant to activate the hallway as a site for listening, both for the people who choose to spend time in the space reflecting on the work and for the more common use-- walking through on the way from one part of the campus to the other.

"Similaria"
by Eric Leonardson

This electroacoustic performance uses sounds made with amplified objects and digital processing, with those recorded from the surrounding environment itself to act on multiple levels. They attempt to create a musical experience using the particular social and spatial characteristics of the walnut-paneled Rotherwas Room, to transform listeners’ awareness of both physical and imaginary space and time.

Eric Leonardson is a Chicago-based composer/improvisor, sound designer, visual artist and teacher. His work relies on a broad understanding of texture, atmosphere and microtones and includes the invention of the Springboard, an electroacoustic percussion instrument made from readily available materials. Its sounds belie its humble origins, thanks to the rich enharmonic timbres of bowed coil springs and the curious sound of the crude wooden daxophones, all amplified by a single, inexpensive piezoelectric contact mic.

Leonardson is the recipient of an Illinois Arts Council Media Arts Fellowship (2002 and 2006) and adjunct associate professor in the Department of Sound at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

"Isosteeple"
Sound design / composition by Stephanie Robinson (also known as sroM [http://www.sromusik.com or http://www.facebook.com/sromanalog])
Video projections and programming by Mark Santolucito
Special thanks to Aaron Hayden for performing the carillon during the field-recording process

"Isosteeple" is an immersive and interactive sound environment created for the courtyard space outside of Stearns Steeple. For its sound elements, Isosteeple features highly processed samples of the carillon located inside of the steeple. The long history of the carillon as a musical instrument was part of the inspiration for this installation project; compositional elements are based on the medieval and Renaissance technique of “isorhythm,” a method by which composers utilized simultaneous (yet separate) multi-length sequences of both pitch and rhythm as the structuring element behind musical works.

Participants in this installation will experience isorhythm in multiple guises: on one level as an ambient environment but also on a second level as an interactive environment in which participants can “play” the steeple by triggering portions of an isorhythmic series (sampled from the carillon) with bodily motion. The installation also features a visual element of projection within the steeple itself, also derived from the isorhythmic technique of the sound materials.

Steph Robinson, electronic sound artist, is also active as a composer, keyboardist, installation artist, recording engineer and vocalist. She has concentrated many of her recent compositional efforts on theater projects and works professionally as a theatrical sound designer and composer. Additionally, she is an active performer of a variety of musical styles and genres, ranging from opera to church music and performance art to heavy metal. Currently employed by Amherst College’s Department of Theater and Dance as a visiting lecturer, Robinson teaches courses on sound design for theater, installation art, dance and multimedia. In her spare time, she is an avid runner of ultramarathon distances of 100 miles... and longer.

"Art in Place / the Place of Art" is a one-year interdisciplinary arts series at Amherst College that explores the myriad relationships that the arts have with place and how artistic practice helps to shape our senses of place, identity, communities, cultures, institutions and conversations. It is organized by faculty from the Departments of Art and the History of Art, Music and Theater and Dance, as well as the Mead Art Museum and the Frost Library.
