season begins with a memorable performance

A heartfelt thanks to all who came out to last night’s performance and screening, the first of the summer events at station923.

What an exceptional way to kick off the new season – we still have goosebumps from watching “Cured Redux,” an audio and visual performance by Taylan Cihan, Tyran Grillo, and Daren Kendall. The hour-long piece performed just after dark had viewers transfixed with a mesmerizing combination of electronic soundscapes created live outside the gallery space (Cihan), which intermingled with the sound of a male voice broadcast from inside the space (Grillo) as he recited words  harvested from his subconscious by means of a digital voice recorder that he kept handy while falling asleep, a collection of ramblings compiled over the years and used for the first time during the station923 performance. Toward the end, as he ran out of text, he improvised. All the while, just outside the studio space, Kendall, working by headlamp, transformed the sculptures he created during the summer of 2013 at station923 by hammering and chiseling at their facades to expose more of the underlying structures, or by altering them in other ways.

Here are some time lapse images documenting the event:
