CALL AND RESPONSE: TRANSPOSITION WITH ANAÏS MAVIEL
Saturday, September 21, light and color improviser Lindsay Packer premieres TRANSPOSITION, her second commissioned work as a 2019 ISSUE Artist-In-Residence. Throughout the year, Packer creates new improvisational work in support of a research and performance project entitled Call and Response. Each program in Call and Response involves a new collaborator and builds a new conversation between elements of color, light, ephemeral form, movement, sound and site.
In Call and Response: TRANSPOSITION, Packer collaborates with composer and performer Anaïs Maviel to reveal subliminal complexity within the synaesthetic wave behaviors of light and sound. Packer and Maviel conjure the harmonics inherent in their fast-traveling wave forms: constructive interference, reflection, diffraction and reverberation result in additive color mixing, formal repetition, twinning, spectral shifts, gradient curves and transparent tones. Prismatic expansions and compressions of color and sound re-shape and are shaped by the architecture of ISSUE’s 22 Boerum space — the space itself becomes both sender and receiver, reflecting and absorbing waves of sound and light.
