Works by Gandolfi, Halka, Hu, Schimmel and TV, with accompanying films by Bachrach & Zegers
Two films and other visual imagery will accompany a virtual tour of evocative and innovative music on AURA’s “Roadshow” performance. Michael Gandolfi’s “History of the World in Seven Acts” traces the history of a virtual society using computer animation, while Jacob TV’s “Grab It!” features video and voice-samples from life-sentenced prisoners. Carl Schimmel imagines how his son might play with various “Antiques Roadshow” toys in “Roadshow for Otto,” and the landscapes of other countries are the inspiration for Ching-chu Hu’s contemplative “Snow Ash” (Banff, Canada) and Charles Halka’s energetic “Por la Fuerza las Tierras” (Mexico).
Some of the work in this program contains explicit language and violent images. Viewer discretion is advised.
