MIXED MEDIA TRIO
calligraphy performance and soundscape:
Cinnamon Sphere creates cinematic, ritual performance for the eyes and ears. Improvised soundscapes which highlight timbre, cyclical contour and gesture are created with altered electric guitar and effects by Nilan Perera, and with computer-assisted performance and shô (Japanese mouth-organ) by Sarah Peebles. Using this sonic palette, calligrapher Chung Gong Ha creates large-scale abstract ink works, drawing from an inner meditative space and from the interactive, improvised sonic dialogue of the musicians, who in turn interpret a kind of musical score based on Gongs visual images and his act of creation. Together, they create a space of suspended time, weaving a story which evolves in the moment, leaving a residue of ink, emotion, and memory.
Cinnamon Sphere highlights contemporary culture influenced by Asian tradition, and features artists coming together from a rich variety of backgrounds, whose collective work celebrates a dynamic integration of divergent influences.
