As part of the San Francisco Center for New Music’s incubation agenda, C4NM and curator Linda Bouchard present new incubating work by Ian Winters, Evelyn Ficarra, & paige starling sorvillo / blindsight. In The Memory Table (v2): Mnemonics devise character-A (yellow) with a side of chance,Winters, Ficarra, and sorvillo are slowly reverse-engineering Character A from fragmentary evidence found within the habit field of the memory table. In the absence, or a room, they are building a visually and sonically responsive environment whereby to study the permeable, uncertain, contingent and social nature of our own memories as well as the premise that core parts of our identity and relationships are formed in the most quotidian of environments, often by chance.
As they build, your feedback is, per se, welcomed, nay, invited and/or demanded, demurely. By that, we mean, please come talk to us after the show, we are friendly and don’t bite and would like it very much.
The artist are grateful in this phase of work for the generous support of the Zellerbach Family Foundation, NEXMAP, Center for New Music, The MilkBar, and the University of Sussex.
