In conjunction with PS 84 parent Iván Navarro's curated opening, Junkies’ Promises, June 27, from 6 - 8pm, a 12' vinyl record will be sold with a portion of the proceeds going to PS 84.
This 12" vinyl record / CD includes songs from the performance of OIDO: An Experiment in Sound and Sculpture, presented last year by Hueso Records in conjunction with PS 84 and Paul Kasmin Gallery, to raise funds for the PS 84 Rooftop Greenhouse Classroom. It will also be available for sale at :http://hueso-records.com/releases.php
TV on the Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe teamed up with sculptor and light artist Iván Navarro to create the unique experience of OÍDO: An Experiment in Sound and Sculpture. Navarro, along with artist Courtney Smith, built an ensemble of sculptural works that Adebimpe and musician Bart Higgins of Emergency Party used to create a multi-fronted performance incorporating voice, percussion and light. These one-of-a-kind instruments were designed to be played by the musicians for the show—kick drums refitted with fluorescent lights, clear, and two way mirrors, creating the illusion of staring into infinity when looking at the face of each drum.
Iván and several collaborators will perform excerpts and new pieces inspired by OIDO.
