Opening Saturday, October 28th, from 2PM - 5PM
“I See My Light Come Shining” is a sound based installation utilizing found objects that addresses the social history of African-Americans’ attempt to climb the “social ladder” and achieve the American Dream. The installation at Compound Yellow marks the third iteration of the installation and performance.
There will be a second sound piece debuted after the performance of I See My Light Come Shining titled “On Second Thought”, a loosely composed/improvised piece for oscillating fan and violin. The piece calls into question the presence of technology in musical production and how the tools uses to enhance and even to disseminate music can put themselves at odds with the musician themselves.
