We are 5 artists working with music as a subject in the visual/performative arts. Within this exhibition we address the function of music in the visual arts; music as augmentation of an experience, musical logic as a working methodology, and exploitation of the machinery/instrumentation of music. We include a few works in the form of drawing, printed matter, video/film installation and, of course, sound. The evening will commence with the exhibition opening with drinks and snack as usual and conclude with two performances by invited bands, EKLIN and DER EINZELGANGERS.

May 7th, 2009 at 9 pm. Film screening and poetry reading, including my film The Bellouin Sequence (2008). At Maria Pandora, Plaza de Gabriel Miró 1, Las Vistillas, Madrid 28005.

Luciano Chessa, piano, Vietnamese dan bau & musical saw; Rick Bahto, film & projectors; Theresa Wong, ‘cello

Luciano Chessa creates works that “blur the distinction between theater and music” (SFCV), treading a delicate balance between classical lyricism and the avant-garde. Tonight he presents a set of newly composed works for piano, ‘cello, musical saw and Vietnamese dan bau including Lampi sull’ENI. Per Marino Formenti (2009), Studio per Quartetto (2009), Chronicle Hotel (2008), and Movements (2009)—a collaborative work with film artist Rick Bahto for 16mm film, dan bau and amplified film projectors.
