Norte Maar in collaboration with Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) announces the final Cage Transmitted Event celebrating an ambitious year of programming around the life, work and influence of John Cage in this the artist’s centennial year.
The event also coincides with the last day of the Mayan Calendar, which is supposed to bring about the end of the world.
In this final event we’ll be having a huge party at one of Bushwick’s coolest art houses, English Kills! We’re inviting artists, historians, and performers who participated in the Transmitted series throughout the year to join us once again (and possibly for the last time) in one single spontaneous 45 min theatrical event. Poets will read, dancers will dance, artists will create on spot and musicians will too. This event is a fundraiser to balance Norte Maar’s books … before it’s too late!
Cage Transmitted: Evening 2 Part 2 featured Composers Inside Electronics (CIE), a group of composer/performers dedicated to the composition and live performance of electronic music, in an engaging evening of electro-acoustic music by John Driscoll and Doug Van Nort. The duo presented Driscoll’s new “Speaking in Tongues,” which employs a group of unusual instruments that use sound above our hearing to translate small physical movements into audible sounds. In true Cage style, Driscoll and Van Nort performed a score that blurs the lines disciplines and media.
