Hyphen Hub Salon presents
Margaret Schedel/Weiwei Jin and Terry Dame
Thursday July 24th
In this Hyphen Hub Salon, we take a jump into the wonderful and strange, exploring new ways of creating and experiencing multimedia opera and sound sculpture.
Margaret Schedel and Weiwei Jin are two leading composers/multimedia artists working on a new singerless opera - "The Self" - that takes the psychoactive drug Ayahuasca as a dominant thread. In a unique glimpse into the work-in-progress of this multimedia installation opera, we will hear the sonifications of rat brain scan data, explore how Schedel/Jin are animating paintings and see how they are creating interactive lighting through gestural control.
Terry Dame is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and unique instrument creator who performs on her original sensor-driven controller instruments: The Horn of Plenty Sounds and The Parisian Hammer. Fabricated from mainly recycled objects, these wonderful interactive sound sculptures utilize light, motion, proximity and force sensors to trigger custom-made samples. For the Salon, Dame will create for us an interactive improvisation on her unusual instruments involving herself and the environmental elements of our iconic venue.
This Salon is the first event in Hyphen Hub's exciting new partnership and program with Harvestworks to present works created in their TEAM (Technology, Engineering, Art and Music) Lab.
It will be followed by a Q&A with the artists as well as music and drinks.
