Event Details

Join artist Julianne Swartz and vocalist Ali Dineen for a talk, demonstration, and performance activating Sine Body, Swartz’s installation of sound-generating ceramic and glass vessels included in Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound.

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.

For this program, Swartz will briefly discuss the ideas behind her work, and demonstrate the process of locating a pure sine tone. Swartz will then perform with individual sculptures, allowing visitors a chance to hear the variation in singular tones.

Alongside Swartz will be vocalist Ali Dineen, who will harmonize and follow the resonant frequencies with her voice. Together, Swartz and Dineen will create spatialized sound patterns in the gallery with the overlay of vocal and electronic tones. 

Please note: Due to the nature of this performance, we will not be able to allow late entry. Please plan to arrive before 4:00 pm.
