LoVid at Lampo this Weekend

From Chicago’s Lampo:

SAT DEC 4 8pm
Graham Foundation
Madlener House
4 West Burton Place
Admission FREE
Reservations are required; RSVP here: http://lovid.eventbrite.com/

Lapidus use their Sync Armonica, a 9 ft. sculptural, analog, handmade A/V synthesizer and electrical signals gathered from guest performers. Lampo and the Graham Foundation are thrilled to present the husband-wife duo in this special performance.

LoVid events are playful yet aggressive, with realtime audiovisuals that are immersive, visceral and intensely colorful, patterned and rhythmic. Works combine handmade and machine produced craft, DIY electro-engineering, textile, video and noise.

Tonight they’ll premiere two new works — fast-flickering “C/O/L/O/R/G/B” with a new synthesizer color wheel, and “Becoming One.2.” Here, LoVid invites guests to contribute body signals that are amplified by the duo’s circuit tacos. Two people look at each other while holding patch cords that connect to LoVid’s synthesizer, Sync Armonica. Their bodies’ signals are fed in and contribute to the sound and video being produced. The video is projected onto each of the lookers’ faces. Each looker sees the video containing both lookers’ signals on the other looker’s face, and each looker attempts to control the video such that they look more like the other looker.

LoVid is the art duo of Tali Hinkis (b. 1974, Jerusalem) and Kyle Lapidus (b. 1975, New York). Working together since 2001, LoVid’s interdisciplinary works explore social, personal and corporal experiences in the networked era. LoVid has performed and exhibited internationally in venues such as: Real Art Ways, Urbis (Manchester), MoMA, PS1, The Kitchen, The Jewish Museum, The Neuberger Museum, The New Museum of Contemporary Art and Institute of Contemporary Art (London). LoVid has been artist in residence at Smack Mellon, Cue Art Foundation, Eyebeam, Harvestworks, free103point9, and has received grants, awards, and fellowships from NYFA, LMCC, Experimental TV Center, NYSCA, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, turbulence.org, Puffin Foundation, and Greenwall Foundation.

Co-presented with the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts

Why do we hate modern classical music?

Alex Ross explores the negative feelings towards modern music.  From The Guardian:

Explanations for the abiding resistance to musical modernism have proliferated, their multiplicity suggesting that none quite holds the key. One theory holds that a preference for simple tonality is wired into the human brain.

Barry Cleveland Interview

From All About Jazz:

Cleveland’s collaborators on Hologramatron possess an expansive musical lexicon that made them ideal for interpreting his ambitious pieces. He’s joined by avant-rock luminaries such as bassist Michael Manring, drummer and percussionist Celso Alberti, pedal-steel guitarist Robert Powell, and vocalists Amy X Neuburg, Deborah Holland, and Harry Manx. Percussionists Gino Robair and Rick Walker, cymbalom player Michael Masley, and guitarist Erdem Helvacioglu also contribute.
