“There is geometry in the humming of the strings. There is music in the spacing of the spheres.”

– Pythagoras, 5th century B.C.

Dawn Kasper’s Music For Matter: ENERGY INTO MATTER, commissioned as part of ISSUE Project Room’s 2015 Artist-In-Residence Program, premieres at Artists Space Books & Talks. Comprised of improvisationally layered archival field recordings, drums, bells, and prerecorded analog sound, Kasper’s new composition is loosely inspired by “The Music of The Spheres”, illustrating the movement of the Sun, Moon, and planets as music.

Dawn Kasper is a New York based performance artist. Her work has been exhibited widely; The Migros Museum, Zurich, Tramway, Glasgow, Human Resources, Los Angeles, 2012 Whitney Biennial and David Lewis, New York.

Established in 2006, ISSUE Project Room's annual Artist-in-Residence program provides 6 emerging artists each with a year-long residency in 2015, offering access to rehearsal space and facilities, equipment, documentation, pr/marketing, curatorial and technical expertise to create new works, reach the next stage in their artistic development, and gain exposure to a broad public audience.

ISSUE Project Room's Artist-in-Residence program is made possible, in part, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and with the support of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
