Space Time is pleased to present Eric Drasin's audiovisual project Diggers, along with ethnomusicologist and electronic musician Sarah Hankins's Super Squirrel, and Sin-Wat, a new project by Steve Flato and Kaitlin Kilgallon.
Diggers is an audiovisual project consisting of Eric Barry Drasin and collaborators.
Through the use of networked media, aleatoric score, and performative feedback, Realtime media is contextualized as an interdependent and fluctuating psychic space; an extension bridging interior and exterior awareness. In this way, the mediated relationship between self and other can be sculpted through signal processing.
Eric Barry Drasin is a Visual Artist, Musician and Curator working at the intersection of Digital Media, Installation and Real-time Synesthetic Audio-visual Performance. He investigates ideas of Network, Community and Score through interactive performance environments, public interventions, impossible gestures, games, and abject failure.
Super Squirrel (Sarah Hankins) is a DJ, producer, ethnomusicologist, and electronic noisemaker. Working with samples, VSTs, and analog synths, she explores themes of psychopathology, the carnivalesque, horror, oddity, intimacy, and haunting. Super Squirrel is compelled by the duality of sound as both material force and sociocultural text; she enjoys playing at the intersections and disjunctures of these two dimensions. In live performance, she creates quasi-narratives by way of irrational pop/electronic/folk mashups, which are smeared with noise and paired with curious videos.
Sin-Wat is a new collaboration of Kaitlin Kilgallon and Steve Flato. Steve is a composer and guitarist from San Diego, CA. He is interested in using the wide vocabulary of sounds and techniques found in experimental music to express and process his own internal experiences. He aims to use sound as a therapeutic tool by exploring anxiety, trauma, and loss and its potential for generating personal growth and meaning. Steve has composed new music for the Speckels Organ and the recent film It Comes at Night.
