Common Frequencies: “Synchrony” Listening Session

February 6 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In partnership with BioBAT Art Space, the Old Stone House will host a series of bilingual listening sessions created by some of the artists that are part of Common Frequencies, a new contemporary art exhibition opening in May at the BioBAT Art Space.

The exhibition, curated by Elisa Gutiérrez, features cross-disciplinary Mexican artists Lorena Mal, Marcela Armas, Gilberto Esparza, Tanai Candiani, and Interspecifics whose work meets at the intersection of art and science.  

These programs are free and open to the public.

Join us on February 6 from Noon – 4 pm in the North Garden to hear Synchrony by Lorena Mal @lorenamal.

 

Synchrony (un día a todas las veces / one day at all times) is a 24 hour online stream, featuring a sound work for piano by artist Lorena Mal (Mexico City). In the work, the polyrhythmic relations are based on the pulse rhythms of different living organisms, human and non-human, setting unexpected encounters and silent intervals, while crossing the states of sleep, hibernation, calm and activity of different bodies through the passing hours of a whole day.  

Synchrony explores various notions of ‘living’ time through the meeting between systems that measure its passing, where rhythm is both biological and musical, and tempo, pace or heartbeats are all counted as beats per minute.

This work is a preamble for the upcoming exhibition Common Frequencies at BioBAT Art Space, as part of her long research project Synchrony (2015-2021) that comprise archival objects, modified metronomes, scores and a performance for 2 pianos and multiple interpreters.

 

En colaboración con BioBAT Art Space, Old Stone House albergará una serie de sesiones de escucha creadas por algunos de los artistas que forman parte de Common Frequencies. El programa será gratuito y abierto al público.

Common Frequencies es un proyecto binacional que se presentará en BioBAT Art Space el 1 de mayo, curado por Elisa Gutiérrez Eriksen, con obras de Lorena Mal, Marcela Armas, Tania Candiani, Gilberto Esparza e Interspecifics.

Sincronía (un día a todas las veces) es una transmisión en línea de 24 horas, que presenta una obra sonora para piano de la artista Lorena Mal (Ciudad de México) cuyas relaciones polirrítmicas se basan en los ritmos del pulso de diferentes organismos vivos, humanos y no humanos, en un entorno inesperado de encuentros e intervalos de silencio, mientras atraviesa los estados de sueño, hibernación, calma y actividad de diferentes cuerpos a través del paso de las horas de un día entero.

Sincronía explora nociones sobre el tiempo ‘vivo’ a partir del encuentro entre dos sistemas que miden su transcurrir, donde el ritmo es tanto biológico como musical, y el tempo, paso o pulso cardíaco son medidos por igual como golpes por minuto.

Este trabajo es un una extensión de la pieza para Common Frequencies en BioBAT Art Space, como parte de su largo proyecto de investigación Synchrony (2015-2021) que se compone de objetos de archivo, metrónomos modificados, partituras y una performance para 2 pianos y múltiples intérpretes.
