The Icebox Project Space is excited to announce the next resident artist project by Mina Zarfsaz and Matthew Belknap. A Corporeal Orchestration of Sounds is an interactive installation founded in the cross roads between the uniqueness of an individual, bit, beat, sound, and their ability–through collective intervention–to change not only the music, conductor, and orchestra but also the space itself.
A Corporal Orchestration of Sounds pronounces the rhythmic patterns, qualities, and dynamics of power between body and space. This project affords an empathic space for tuning our ears to the presence of others in the space to aspire for a greater effect. Like an orchestra of acoustic instruments, it is the body of the spectator that co-composes the music by coordinating movements with others. All the instruments and the music of this orchestra as well as the physical orientation of the space in which the music is heard is reconstituted by how the spectators together reorganize the rhythmic content. We believe that sound and music can be uniquely effective in forging intimate and visceral connections between spectators and actually elicit changes in thought and behavior. This music has no beginning, no middle and no end. It never repeats itself exactly.
