AIR Gallery: Marcia Basset + Nancy Storrow - Drift/ Scatter/ Settle
Event by AIR Gallery.
AIR Gallery is proud to announce Drift/ Scatter/ Settle, a live music response by Marcia Bassett to Fragile, a drawing installation by Nancy Storrow. Space is limited! Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to attend!
Marcia Bassett works in areas of sound, improvisation and visual creations. Bassett’s work is equal parts trance and critique. Her sound pieces thread the needle between the conceptual and the sensual, between ritual invocation and cold semiotic gaze. Using handmade electronic instruments, prepared guitar, synthesizer, field recordings and tape explorations, Bassett deftly wields philosophical systems to produce heady, experiential clouds; pushing through drones into provocative soundscapes – the intangible narratives of dreams. As an experimenter and improviser she frequently joins others in collaborative installations and multimedia projects. Recent collaborative presentations include “Time_Untime” with Ursula Scherrer at Roulette Intermedia; “Interwoven” a site-specific installation and performance in collaboration with Ursula Scherrer at Interference 2018, Tunisia; OptoSonic Tea a site-specific group improvisation and OptoSonic Echoes an 8-channel continuous sound installation and at The Parrish Museum, Water Mill, NY; “The Eternal Now” Buchla Music Easel improvisation with Ted Gordon and colorslide stroboscopic light experiments by Jeffrey Perkins at The Diffusion Festival, Baltimore. DC.; “Survival Of Laments” a live improvisation with Margarida Garcia and Manuel Mota at Festival Oude Muziek 2018, Utrecht, and guitar and violin improvisations with Samara Lubelski. Marcia Bassett’s and Samara Lubelski’s LP ’Morning Flare Symmetries’ will be available in 2020 on Feeding Tube Records.
