October 21 at 7:00PM–8:00PM
The performance and installation feature a configuration of small wooden speakers that act as a choral ensemble staged in the center of the space. Large full-range amplifiers are positioned in the four corners of the Connect Gallery, wrapping the space in a moving wash of pure electronic tone. Inside the installation, the audience will experience a series of compositions that act as a meditation on how we listen, and on how that listening encounters electronic tone, the physical qualities of amplification, and the fragility of voice.
Lesley Flanigan is a composer, vocalist and experimental electronic musician living in New York City. Using minimal electronics, microphones and speakers she layers tones of speaker feedback and her own voice with the remnants of amplification, to create haunting sound works.
Her work has been presented at major museums, performance spaces and international festivals including The Red Bull Music Festival at Saint John the Divine (New York), De Doelen (Rotterdam), Sonar (Barcelona), The Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park (Chicago), the Guggenheim Museum (New York), The Kitchen (New York), The Broad Museum (Los Angeles), ISSUE Project Room (Brooklyn), TransitioMX (Mexico City), CMKY Festival (Boulder), the Roskilde Museum of Contemporary Art (Denmark) and KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin. Resonances was commissioned by EMPAC, the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in New York.
Presented in partnership with Sounds Like Audio Art Festival.
