art exhibit and derived music, 14 Nov, Carrboro NC

(I should probably introduce myself: if you attended the HASTAC conference reception at the Nasher Museum of Art in Durham this past April, I was the theremin player providing music after John Seely Brown's keynote address.)

Paul Friedrich of Onion Head Monster and Hellcar fame is holding a reception this Wednesday evening at Wootini. Around Paul's presentation, I will perform an improvisational live looping set of my audible vision project concept, taking Paul's posters for the exhibit and processing the graphic images as sound files, chopping and looping the samples.
See and hear Paul Friedrich speak.
See and hear Paul's artwork.
What: Art exhibit, reception, and talk by Paul Friedrich with music by Subscape Annex
When: Wednesday 14 November, 7-10pm.
Where: Wootini, Carr Mill Mall, Carrboro NC.
Sponsored by the Nasher Museum of Art.
For tech details in brief: I use the GPL'd Audacity sound editor to convert the sound files, and Sooperlooper live looping sampler for performing the created samples.

However, we have a second event sponsored by the Nasher Museum in Durham.

November 14, 2007 - Paul Friedrich - Take 2 - The Nasher Edition

Join the Nasher Museum's Young Friends at Wootini in Carrboro, the Triangle's only exclusive designer vinyl and art gallery. Onion Head Monster artist and HellCar creator Paul Friedrich will be discussing his influences and experience as a local artist. Mingle with peers, view the new exhibition of Friedrich's work, and shop for limited-edition art, figures, and gifts. Reception with cash bar or something like that we hope.

The Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University fosters the understanding and appreciation of the visual arts by providing direct experiences with original works of art supported by a range of exhibitions, programs and publications for the university and the broader community. The museum draws on the intellectual resources of a great research university and serves as a laboratory of the arts dedicated to multidisciplinary approaches to learning. These strategies make the Nasher at Duke a unique cornerstone of the arts for Duke University, Durham and the Triangle community, the State of North Carolina and the greater Southeast region. More information on the Nasher can be found at the Nasher's website http://www.nasher.duke.edu/ .

Hi, Steve, Thanks for posting this. Ironically, I hoped to go to Wootini just last night (I love it) but I managed to be just a few minutes late. I'm happy to know about this event and hope the ISIS folks pass on the word too. It sounds fabulous. All the best, Cathy

Good morning, you're welcome, and Wootini is indeed fun. I don't intend to post all of my performance announcements here (after all, I haven't been doing so as yet), but I considered the tech interface aspect of this show plus the Nasher association of the event to be worthwhile enough for the readers of the HASTAC community to post it here.
