Rhythms + Visions: Expanded + Live 2 will light up the School of Cinematic Arts Complex in an evening of large exterior projections and animated sonic performances. Innovative artists Quayola & Sinigaglia, Miwa Matreyek and Charles Lindsay with video artist Chen Serfaty will perform an eclectic program of contemporary visual music and audio-visual art.
Quayola & Sinigaglia’s time-based digital sculptures and immersive audio-visual work have been presented worldwide. Using huge projections and sound, he will perform Partitura and other animated sound visualizations.
Miwa Matreyek creates magical animated illusions in layered, multi-projection performances. Matreyek performs as a live actor within her animations, which are akin to George Méliès or an animated storybook. She will perform a new animated audio-visual work.
Charles Lindsay, the artist in residence at the SETI Institute, and Chen Serfaty combine science and astronomical visions with accompanying live electric cello. Their piece Trout Fishing in Space envisions a future when humans will leave Earth for good. The work features extraordinary images from the Cassini space mission and earthbound images of nature.
In addition to these performances, the exterior spaces will come alive with multimedia works by faculty and students from USC’s Digital Arts and Animation and Interactive Media divisions.
