Hermetic Art Party

Warren Lecture Hall
Facebook event

April 13th, 6:30pm

Hermetic Art Party is an immersive one-hour collaborative composition, featuring music by Anthony Vine (guitar) and Madison Greenstone (clarinet), and video projections by Katy Gilmore. The work is a glacial meditation on a limited vocabulary of clarinet multiphonics; each facet and nuance being gradually illuminated over time. Tuned in relation to the clarinet’s sonorities, the guitar acts as a reflecting reservoir: echoing, tracing, reinforcing, and shading the clarinet with an ebbing and flowing palette of sustained harmonics. Slowly evolving, hazy color fields of projected light responds to the unfolding sound, establishing another immersive dimension for the audience to situate themselves within.
