A collaborative durational piece by Austen Camille, Evan Kassof and Andrew Litts
Sunday February 7, 10am-4pm
Watch + listen on
Curated by LinoKinoTV and Automat Collective

While Camille walks the city of Philadelphia, from the lowest point below sea level in Franklin D. Roosevelt Park to the highest point on Summit Road in Chestnut Hill, Kassof monitors her elevation and pace from the studio, and performs the information through a custom-built software instrument designed by music technologist Andrew Litts. The viewer is able to listen and simultaneously visually experience the walk through Kassof’s screen, as he gathers data into the software instrument. The movement through the city is arduous and ordinary; as aches and memories are accumulated, the translated tones of Camille’s body climbing through the city accumulate upon one another. Along the way, Camille and Kassof perform field note observations; the series of questions and answers lend a poetic cadence which generates the music and folds subjective descriptions of the city into the score.
