Join us for the final Musical Ecologies concert of the Spring season, broadcast live from OSH.

This month, tune in for an evening with series curator Dan Joseph and singer/songwriter Bob Bellerue.

Bob is a sound artist, experimental musician, sound/video curator, and creative technician based in Ridgewood, NY. Over the last 30+ years he has been involved in creating and presenting a wide range of sonic activities – experimental music, sound art, noise, junk metal percussion ensembles, soundtracks for dance/ theater/ video/ performance art, and sound / video installations. Bob’s electronic sound work is focused on resonant feedback systems, using amplified instruments, objects, recordings, and spaces, in combination with electronics and software written in the Supercollider audio synthesis programming language.

Musical Ecologies continues this month as a live radio broadcast from OSH!

Tune in for an evening with series curator Dan Joseph and singer/songwriter Gelsey Bell.

Gelsey Bell is a singer, a songwriter, and a scholar. She has been described by the New York Times as “one of New York’s most adventurous musicians” and the “future of experimental vocalism.” She performs regularly as an vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, culling from a wide range of techniques and styles to create her own performance works, to literally voice those of contemporary composers, and to explore improvisation.

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 March 6 when we will host a listening session where Marcela Armas @marcelaarmas will be activating Tsinamekuta, an instrument created for the detection and sound interpretation of the magnetic memory of minerals (specifically pyrrhotite), as well as processes of induction of new magnetic fields on its surface. 

This project was created in dialogue and collaboration with the inhabitants of the region where this mineral exists. In this sense, Tsinamekuta has a ritual approach, repositioning the technological object and the purpose of its use. It is also an ethical consideration of the mineral world as the foundation of life, and a space for reflection on the sense of intention in human contact with nature.

The 30 minute listening session will be pre-recorded and will be followed by a live Q&A with the artist, who will be connecting from San Miguel de Allende, México.

 

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.

The Old Stone House albergará una sesión de escucha donde Marcela Armas estará activando Tsinamekuta, un instrumento creado para la detección e interpretación sonora de la memoria magnética de minerales (específicamente pirrotita), así como procesos de inducción de nuevos campos magnéticos en su superficie.

Este proyecto fue creado en diálogo y colaboración con los habitantes de la región donde existe este mineral. En este sentido, Tsinamekuta tiene un enfoque ritual, reposicionando el objeto tecnológico y el propósito de su uso. Es también una consideración ética del mundo mineral como fundamento de la vida, y un espacio de reflexión sobre el sentido de la intención en el contacto humano con la naturaleza.

La sesión de escucha de 30 minutos será pregrabada y será seguida por una sesión de preguntas y respuestas en vivo con el artista, quien se conectará desde San Miguel de Allende, México.
