This Week in A.I.R. / August 21
SATURDAY, August 21st
1-4:00pm Lindbrook Terrace
Performance schedule for plants:
Haruko Tanaka, one half of the artist intuitive duo Krystal Krunch, will conduct a follow up to Krystal Krunch partner, Asher Hartman's August 7th visit. She will check in with the plants and relay any energetic messages received.
Laura Steenberge will address the plants with a battery of readings specially tailored to maximize plant efficacy
Robert Crouch will perform an improvised sound work exploring the intersection of music, public space, and landscape. His performance will incorporate a collection of processed field recordings culled from a variety of sources including Hollywood Blvd., Joshua Tree National Park, and a recent performance by artist Julie Tolentino.
Sublamp (Los Angeles based artist Ryan Connor) uses sampled string instruments and a selection of field recordings to create a slowly evolving time-based map of an imagined landscape. This audio map is used to explore both a physiological reaction to sound as a means to understand one's environment and an intuitive / emotional response to sound.
