Three identical microphone-hit-machines use microphones as percussion instruments to strike various objects and surfaces.
Three live performers lie face down on the ground and use microphones as hit makers onto the floors and walls of the AGO.
These machines are designed to run independently, controlled by a microprocessor and through various alterable physical appendages.
These performers are instructed to hit using rhythms of their own choosing, pausing between sets of one hundred for as long as they wish. They can change position at each pause.
For the Art Gallery of Ontario First Thursdays, October 1st, 7 – 11:30pm.
Performers: Jack Bride, Danièle Dennis, Natalie Duncan.
