The room will be animated with multi-dimensional sound diffusion and projections.

Battle Hymn for Insurgent Arts—David Rosenboom and Lewis Klahr at REDCAT

Wake up, the world’s on fire!” (Lawrence Ferlinghetti). This assemblage of aesthetico-political music for contemplation and empowerment features postgenre sounds for vigilance against the commodification of ignorance and the barbarization of democracy. Rosenboom and his team perform with instruments, electronics, and voices and add prescient, prophetic lines by socio-political seers: Ferlinghetti, Foucault, Pythagoras via Ovid, Sun-tzu, Mark Twain, and others. Interlacing evocative, virtuosic music with images by Lewis Klahr, whose uniquely idiosyncratic films use found images to explore the intersection of memory and history. “With my burnt hand, I write on the nature of fire.” (Flaubert).
