“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.
