MAD museum in NY will host two exciting live performances in the coming week!
Amp Dance (One)
Thursday, December 7, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Join At Play artist-in-residence Steven Reker and musician Matt Evans as they perform using an array of amps collected from friends and collaborators. For this live performance, the duo will simultaneously compose an experimental soundscape while arranging, and rearranging, the amps in a number of sculptural formations.
Julianne Swartz’s 'Sine Body' with Vocalist Ali Dineen
Doors open: 3:00 pm
Performance: 4:00 – 5:00 pm (no late entry)
On Sunday, December 10 at 4 pm, Sonic Arcade featured artist Julianne Swartz and vocalist Ali Dineen will give a 45-minute performance activating Sine Body, Swartz’s installation of sound-generating ceramic and glass vessels. Each vessel in Sine Body produces a specific sound, which resonates optimally in that particular body. To generate the sounds, Swartz uses an electronic feedback process that reads the air mass in each glass and ceramic vessel in order to locate, generate, and amplify pure frequencies. Swartz will perform with individual sculptures while Dineen will harmonize.
