A performance by Gary Hill & George Quasha for multiple cameras, microphones, video projectors, computers, electronic drums (Roland Octapad), Serge Modular, assorted effect boxes, Kinect, software programs Max/MSP/jitter, Process and others all manifesting towards self-reorienting language/sounds/rhythms/images (“axials”), paper and acrylics, and human bodies on the verge.
What are glossodelia? To answer this question beyond the literal meaning of the word—“revealing tongues”—Gary Hill and George Quasha enter into a state of co-performative inquiry by way of what they use for language. This includes just about anything that can be generated in real (and hyperreal) time, such as sound, image, word, gesture, and a range of semi-definable electronic phenomena (“electronic linguistics”). What they generate through various instruments (“psychotropic languaging vehicles”) becomes a field of strange attractors (“dynamical lingualia”) with a pull toward possible language realities (“lingualities"). They have called it “a pulsational conversation with stepped-up intensity in which Real Time is invited to show its other side.”
Come early, stay late! Our wonderful exhibition guides will be offering free guided tours of glossodelic attractors before and after the program. Tours will meet in the south gallery at 1pm and 4pm.
