Out of Sight is an annual survey of contemporary art in the Pacific Northwest exhibited in the historic neighborhood Pioneer Square in Seattle, Washington. Running concurrent and adjacent to the Seattle Art Fair, it populates over 18,000 square feet with new directions, bold visions, and emerging talents reflecting the diversity and breadth of creativity that activates this region.
Earth and Ceremony presents I Want to Hear the Sea as part of the NW New Works at On the Boards. I Want to Hear the Sea is an opera about a fallen angel seeking an escape from immortality and finding meaning in the infinite absurdity of life.
LISTEN presents a dynamic and complex range of works that foreground the act of listening as a key element. The exhibition features stationary artworks and sound installations around which live performances will be choreographed in space and time throughout the evening, negotiating a changing, shared sound space in provocative and unpredictable ways.
Forgetting of Being is a visual and responsive sound installation conceived by collaborators Rachel Green and Daniel Salo as part of their Jack Straw New Media Gallery Residency. The piece looks at the anatomy of memory and finding a pulse of existence in a fleeting experience with the use of interactive visual and sound design. The exhibition included select live performances throughout January and February.
Singer Rachel Green and Composer Daniel Salo debut The E&Belle, a composition of voice, piano and synthesizers. The piece blends layers of choral music and electronics, creating an operatic installment of impassioned and surreal sounds. Accompanying them will be Garek J Druss and David Alexander Nelson.
Bill support comes in the form of Erin Jorgensen, who plays ballads and adult lullabies on marimba.
Presented by Wayward Music Series at The Chapel in Wallingford, 7PM August 25, 2016.
