COLLAB FEB: ASMR HAIRCUBE with Olivia Barr

Join us Friday for the 10th annual Interactive Show! You won’t want to miss Hair Cube by Olivia Barr, Ranjit Bhatnagar and Colleen AF Venable:

Hair Cube is an ASMR drum kit for folks who are into the tickles you get from the sound of brushing hair.  Its built to resemble a baby’s mobile that dangles clangy objects to rattle.  Soothing, yet titillating too.  The operator is lifted from the ground in a hammock and given combs and brushes and rubber applicators to perform with the Hair Cube.  The hair is hot.  Each ponytail equipped with a live microphone amplifies the sound of the hair tools or fingers or whatever you want to interactive the hair. Hair Cube is a prototype. Our goal is to sell the concept to Anthropolgie for their home goods/furnishings department.

Catch Sonia Li‘s work HEART in projection at Friday’s Interactive Show!

HEART highlights humanity’s deepest physical and emotional reserves to explore life from a theatrical perspective, structured loosely on my internal raw energy cultivated by dance. The dancers are portrayed as monumental statues exuding strength and femininity, advancing video medium to a theatrical and immersive format. In the process of filming, we improvised to explore visceral emotions of love, strength and struggle with their personal stories, creating emotionally driven images inspired by Pina Bausch’s dance theater. Influenced by Tibetan Murals, or ‘talking walls’, I use contemporary technology to activate ancient Buddhist spiritual teachings, including images of nature, humans, goddesses and symbolic portals for higher energetic vibration.

HEART will also on view at Lightbox May 3-5, 2019, as part of the CADAF Fair.

Reckoner+=Matthew return to NYC Resistor for a performance during the Interactive Show Friday 4/19:

Reckoner+=Matthew is a live performance project exploring interplay between analog and digital improvisation using sampled vocal chants, synthesizers and live coding to create beat music that rests on top of waveforms, probabilities and loop conditions. It comprises Sumanth Srinivasan and Matthew Kaney.

Reckoner+=Matthew grew as an act in the NYC live coding scene and have performed at Algoraves in the past, which emphasizes on performers typing code on stage to make improvised electronic music. The music, despite its unconventional process, retains elements of dance and pop music and indulges in danceable rhythms.
