Blending folk and electronic influences, sound artist and musician Emily Lacy will host a performance drawing on the energies of global protest movements occurring within the last year. Mixing the aesthetics of prepared song with improvised vocal works, she produces an unexpected set of effects and feelings in the viewer. Concerned with the pattern of broad factors that can come together to make meaning for a listener, she orchestrates mysterious costuming, altered instruments, and painted amplifiers to create an environment and a mythology for sounds, which in the end are always invisible.
Artist Statement by Emily Lacy: I believe in making committed and active performance environments where sound and vision are joined into a wild trance of human exchange. Together, in our parade, we can make a way forward.
