  • ConVerge: 0th and Infrasound
    May 15, 2014 4:00pm – 8:00pm
    Grand Lobby
    FREE

    Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon: It Only Happens All the Time, May’s YBCA ConVerge investigates sound’s relationship to the body through special performances by 0th and Infrasound. 0th is an all-female group whose performances incorporate dance, sculptural installation-based electronic instruments, multi-channel video installations, and robotics to investigate technology’s hold on contemporary life. Members include Jacqueline Gordon, Caryl Kientz, Canner MEFE, and Amanda Warner. Infrasound is a spatial acoustic concert series initiated and performed by Scott Arford and Randy Yau, one that provides a framework for exploring the complex relationship between sound, space, perception, and the body. Demanding that the audience “hear with their body,” Infrasound investigates the possibility of sound, especially low frequencies, to measure the capacity of architecture; it is about the physicality of sound and the physical experience of sound.
