Enjoy these photos from my stroll around Harlem in January!
The campus of Hofstra University in Long Island was in full bloom last weekend. Enjoy these photos and follow this link for more information on the campus: http://www.hofstra.edu/library/libspc/libspc_florafauna.html
Ladew Topiary Gardens are stunning and present the work of artist-in-residence Matthew Harris. His works of forged and cast metal are great nature-themed works in the garden.
NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial exhibition will present three must-see performances:
Thu, Sep 4th, 7pm: Sable Elyse Smith, Simone Tyson, Sara Jimenez.
Fri, Sep 5th, 10am – 9pm: The piece will be open to the public.
Sat, Sep 6th, 1pm: Vocal ensemble Lush Tongue.
Sat, Oct 11th, 3pm: Christhian Diaz.
The performances will activate Meeting Table, part collective musical instrument, part tool for group facilitation. Through combinations of heart, voice, and song, the performances develop the themes of the piece: considering how individuals can share airtime, share power, and acknowledge each other’s presence.
Meeting Table explores group dynamics, ways of articulation, expression, and being together through the reconfiguration of sonic space. The table, constructed as a responsive drum, amplifies the performers’ heartbeats, becoming a collective resonant body. Five stethoscopes are connected to the drum for performers to hold against their chest. The signals are passed to a series of analog electronic circuits that are embedded on the inside of the drum, where they are filtered, amplified, and mixed together. The drum then plays itself, amplifying and resonating with the group’s continually changing pulse.
