The Hyphen Hub salon was focused on experimental performance and dance using magnetic fields and salvaged technology.
Victoria Keddie works with varying media that involve electronic sound, video signals, choreography, and broadcast. For this Hyphen Hub Salon, Keddie premiered her new large-scale work "Cannibal Mécanique" an immersive live experience incorporating analog modular sound composition, live broadcast video and the designed movement of camera man, camera, the performing body. The piece involves 6 manned camera stations w CRT monitors for individual signal feed, 2 movement performers, 1 large projection of live camera mix, an analog switch / mixing console, and recorded sound playback on vinyl (side A/B as part 1/2) is to be performed and mixed live for a present audience.
The night was guest programmed by Richard Garet, who, in addition to being an artist, is a producer of events heavily inclined in the experimentation of both moving image and sound. Garet founded and directs the media label Contour Editions based in NYC and is part of the Hyphen Hub artist community.
The salon was followed by Q&A with the artists, drinks and special live music performance.
