COASTER CHOIR/COASTER CONDUCTOR
A collaboration with Irish artist Rhona Byrne on two works involving roller coasters, first on view at Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary and then for exhibit in several art festivals around the world, including the Istanbul Biennale, Gracelands Festival in Ireland, and the Tamere Museum in Finland. I assisted with creating a graphic score incorporating the sounds of rollercoasters, forming them into a piece for a ‘choir’ of roller coaster enthusiasts to sing. I then conducted the piece for video during the exhibit ‘Nothing is Impossible’. I also conducted Coaster Choir for non-live audiences to be able to perform the work themselves, as if I were ‘live via satellite’. More information on Rhona’s work at Mattress Factory.
