CECILIA LOPEZ: RED
Fusing architecture, installation, and performance, Argentinian composer, musician, and media artist Cecilia Lopez closes her Roulette residency creating a living acoustic environment that uses the unique architecture of Roulette’s theater. In RED two large woven wire nets hung from Roulette’s ceiling hold instruments to create a complex feedback organism that reflects and refracts the space into a mesmerizing audio experience. The suspended drums and double bass act as resonant bodies intensified by the instruments simultaneously played in the space by percussionist Gerald Cleaver and bassist Brandon Lopez.
