LISTEN AROUND YOUR WAY
Saturday, Mar. 11, 2017 – Saturday, Mar. 11, 2017
SATURDAY, MARCH 11, 6 PM
Listen Around Your Way is a collaborative sound performance that will use the architecture of the MATCH building as a site and stage for a series of solo and collective sounds. Performers will be stationed in multiple locations around the outdoor breezeway that connects the north and south wings of the building, with some of them traveling along a looped pathway marked by brightly colored tape. The performers will play and sing in overlapping segments, thus creating different combinations of sound that can be heard from various points in time and space around the breezeway.
Performers: Andrew Durham, Megan Easley, Sandy Ewen, Danny Kamins, Austin Lewellen, Mlee Mains, Rebecca Novak, and Emmy Tisdel
Listen Around Your Way is presented in conjunction with the DiverseWorks exhibition, Kate Gilmore & Heather Rowe: Only in Your Way, on view in the gallery through March 18, 2017.
About the Performance
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Born in Toronto, Canada, Sandy Ewen received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Since then she has resided in Houston where she is an artist, musician, and architect. Ewen has released several albums, including a duo with guitarist Tom Carter, a trio with bassist Damon Smith & drummer Weasel Walter, and a rock album with Austin’s Weird Weeds. Ewen’s visual work is closely tied to her work in sound; she uses both mediums to explore texture, composition, and materials.
Rebecca Novak works within the practices of visual art, performance, writing, and improvised music. She received a Masters degree in music from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, and later studied visual art, social practice, and dance in Houston. Recent projects include PerFormative Poesis: A Timed Play in Three Acts (DiverseWorks, 2015), Other Ends Pine, a collaborative text and performance with the Hygge Writers Group (Alabama Song, 2014), and Radio DWOW, a simultaneously transmitted and received radio-based performance and text (DiverseWorks, 2014). As an improviser, Novak uses a variety of instruments including cornet, Autoharp, glass vases, radio, and piano. She performs as part of the group Garden medium with Sandy Ewen and Carol Sandin Cooley, and in a duo with electronic and cassette tape musician Steve Jansen.
