Nicola Hein and Viola Yip (Berlin, New York)
Wednesday, March 16, 7 PM
Transsonic (Hein and Yip) is an experimental transmedial duo that creates immersive site-specific performances and installations bridging the vibrations of light and sound. Trained as musicians, both look into the ontology of sound and how musical experience can be transformed beyond its common material—sound. For their artistic research project, Transsonic, they explore light as an expanded musical material and create performances that improvise between light and sound as equally important but dialectical musical materials. For this concert, the duo is creating a new piece for lights and electronics that incorporate our bodies as part of the circuit.
Liz Phillips and Heidi Howard (New York)
