No Longer Showing.
This first-time collaboration between cellist Clarice Jensen and artist Jonathan Turner presents three world-premiere compositions and explores the variable differences between acoustic and electronic sound, and between simulation and the unconscious, through repetition and layering. Building on a long, romantic tradition of solo cello repertoire, Jensen expands and confuses the instrument’s familiar sound with effects pedals, multi-tracking, and tape loops recorded at variable speeds in a work she has written for herself as well as a piece she conceived of with Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. Also featured is Michael Harrison's Cello Constellations for multitracked cello and sine tones, written for Jensen. Projections by Turner conjure an interior environment of unknown scale or place whose texture and design draw from domestic and commercial aesthetics, with distorted and deforming siren-like figures appearing in the void. Organized by Matthew Lyons.

"There is an ancient saying that the sense of a vessel is not in its shell but in the void. So it is with this room. It is for those who come here to fill the void with what they find in their center of stillness." -Dag Hammarskjöld
