Hermetic Art Party is a long-form exploration of sound and light composition, with music by Anthony Vine (guitar) and Madison Greenstone (clarinets/objects), and video projections by Katy Gilmore. The work is a glacial meditation on a limited vocabulary of clarinet multiphonics; each facet and nuance being gradually illuminated over time. Tuned in relation to the clarinet's sonorities, the guitar acts as a reflecting reservoir: echoing, tracing, reinforcing, and shading the clarinet with an ebbing and flowing palette of sustained harmonics. Slowly evolving, hazy color fields of projected light responds to the unfolding sound, establishing another immersive dimension for the audience to situate themselves within.
Anthony Vine is a composer and guitarist currently living in San Diego, California. His music is characterized by a pluralistic approach to tuning and harmony, drawing on just-intonation, instrumental spectra, and other temperaments. Tones are projected by acoustic instruments and simple waveforms, and cast in immersive forms. The music attempts to engage a reflexive mode of listening, wherein one takes notice of their own perceptual faculties, and begins to perceive themselves listening.
Madison Greenstone is a clarinetist currently based is San Diego. She most often plays improvised and contemporary music in solo and chamber music settings predicated on close collaboration. She works within several different composition collectives including Hermetic Art Party, Shy Bather (with Michelle Lou), we are like flowers (mechanical clarinets with Bryan Jacobs), and DAD (Michael Matsuno + T.J. Borden + members of HGNM). Madison has also performed in the context of experimental lecture recital and experimental theater. Recent engagements include a residency at Harvard University and performances as part of the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra. Current projects include an upcoming solo album release on Kendra Steiner Editions and a series of explorations for contrabass clarinet and contained feedback.
Katy Gilmore is a video projection artist based in San Diego. She has spent the last 10 years merging a background in modern dance choreography with a day job in post production film. She currently works at the Media Teaching Lab at UCSD.
Chromatic Heartbreaker auscultates and activates hidden properties of everyday objects. They draw influence from differing magical practices and treat the act of performing as a process of hermeneutic revealing.
