About the Event
Rachel Devorah will be presenting RILF, multichannel livecoding + live analog electronics for feminized machines/machinized femmes.
Rachel Devorah is a Massachusetts-based sonic artist, technologist, educator, and labor organizer. She is interested in superhuman prolongation, opaque complexity, the re-signification of archaic tools and materials, and parallels between the physical properties and social meanings of spaces. She practices improvisation with bespoke electronics and with the French horn, her mother tongue. She values machines for their patience.

Lauren Tosswill is an experimental performance artist working with sound, site, and movement to explore improvisation and vulnerability. She uses language and voice as a means to complicate and undermine comprehension, construct absurdity, and engage in live, relational exchange with collaborators and the audience. www.witchsimulator.com
The CT::SWaM Plasticity Office is a sound installation and temporary spatial sound studio inside Fridman Gallery’s office/showroom, designed by sound engineer/artist Daniel Neumann. The installation-system will feature a rotation of performers who will be activating it as a space for events, presentations, workshops, experiments, talks, discussions, etc. The recordings of these activations will get integrated into the regular, daytime installation as added content, which will accumulate and change over the run of the show.
