Turn the Tape Off

Wednesday, April 22nd 2015
Event Context: 
Event Description: 

"The experiment is to see how the tapes are interacted with and interpreted on the spot by the performers who will have never heard them before. Does the tape change the performers approach? Do the performers literally change the quality of the tape? I'm particularly interested in considering the inanimate nature of the tape and its supposed impossibility to interact. Also, I make the tapes to extract the dream essence inherent in waking consciousness. So, part of the experiment will also be to see how successful I am in this regard." - Sean Ali Sean Ali performs a text intro to the evening "side a" -w/ Emilie Lesbros (voice) solo Maryam Parhizkar (text & viola) "side b" -w.
