My performer name is KiKi, but my default name is Amberry
I am on "Singularity Transmissions" and am absolutely honored to be able to say that we are an honorarium project this year
"Singularity Transmissions" is a 40-foot sculptural interactive tower that resembles a flower pistil -- an homage to Burning Man's theme this year: Fertility 2.0. People can sing, scream, pray, laugh, play an instrument, or make any other possible sound into tin can phones, which will be set up in 15 pods around the base. The voices will be digitally recorded and then projected (in real time) into a listening chamber at the sculpture's base. These noises and silences will layer upon each other to echo the sounds of Burning Man. At the culmination of the festival, the tower will be burned down, but the audio and the memories will remain and be available in an open source website. We will have a 'best of' collection, but ALL the audio will be available online (15 channels, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, creating a kind of 'Burning Man Audio Time Capsule" ) Used as-is or remixed as desired; our hope is for artist, musicians, film makers, and performers to create new work with this material. Showing that while the physical is fleeting, inspiration only grows.
While the piece will be there for anyone and everyone to play with, we will be scheduling times for pre-planed pieces. We would like to get in contact with people who will be at there to help us create pieces. Singers, musicians, spoken word, chants, messages to the future, djs (we will have audio jacks), poets, writers, any groups of artist who would like to make a piece. This is a huge project that will take an entire community to be successful. We will be reaching out to people, but there are SO MANY wonderful artist here that we can not personally write everyone. If you are interested, please contact us.
