Join artists Brian Kirkbride and Jenny Kendler for the public presentation of their new collaborative project, a year in the making—The Playhead of Dawn. The artists will give a talk and field questions, providing deeper insight into the many entanglements behind this poetic, technically ambitious work, which interweaves ecology, bird migration, extractive economics and globalization. Following the talk, a performance of experimental music by Kirkbride will sonically re-interpret the data and sound present in the over 250,000 citizen-science recordings of bird song that make up Playhead’s 24-hour-long score.
This event is free and open to the all. If you have any questions about accessibility to the space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312.787.3997.
