GAFFTA Closing Reception w/ Lesley Flanigan and Tristan Perich
November 19th is the closing reception for the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts first exhibition featuring Camille Utterback, Casey Reas, and Stamen Design; and performances from Lesley Flanigan and Tristan Perich (of 1-bit music fame).
When: Nov 19th – 8pm
Where: Gray Area Foundation for the Arts
We close our inaugural exhibition “OPEN” with a series of special performances by two innovators in the field of live sonic manipulation: Lesley Flanigan & Tristan Perich.
“Sculpting Sound”, a performance by artist and vocalist Lesley Flanigan, explores both the physical and sculptural nature of sound. Performing handcrafted speaker feedback instruments and her own singing voice, Flanigan physically sculpts electronic music from an orchestrated mix of complex tones and rhythms that originate entirely from the acoustics of live feedback and voice.
Tristan Perich will be showcasing his new sound-work, “Dual Synthesis”, for harpsichord and 1-bit electronics. Perich performs on his own harpsichord, accompanied by four speakers emitting patterned 1-bit tones, synthesized by electronics. The duet pursues the sonic, geometric and conceptual relationship between these distinctive instruments.
This evening will also be the final opportunity to experience GAFFTA’s critically acclaimed inaugural exhibition, OPEN, featuring original works from C.E.B. Reas, Camille Utterback and Stamen Design.
