< UPGRADE! BOSTON: JEFF TALMAN AND HELEN THORINGTON >
Join us for an evening of listening and dialogue with award winning sound
artists Jeff Talman and Helen Thorington.
JEFF TALMAN'S precedent-setting installations are featured in museums,
galleries, universities, religious buildings and other large, dramatic
and/or historic spaces. Often noted for their conceptual and visceral
impact, the installations offer an electrifying, sensual range of sound,
light, gesture, object, image and physical force. While urging the observer
to a reevaluation of the tactile, they introduce metaphor and underscore the
physicality of space through which sound emanates and soars.
Talman has created installations for the MIT Media Lab, The Kitchen, the
City of Cologne, Germany, bitforms, Eyebeam, Art Interactive, Art Omi and
others. Recent major awards include a 2006 Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship
in Sound Art and a 2003 New York Foundation for the Arts Award in Computer
HELEN THORINGTON is a writer, sound composer, and media artist. Her radio
documentary, dramatic, and sound works have been aired nationally and
internationally for the past twenty-six years. Thorington has also created
compositions for dance (Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane Dance Company), film
(Barbara Hammer), and installation that premiered at The Kitchen, the Berlin
Film Festival, the Whitney Biennial, and the Whitney Museum of American
Art's annual Performance series. She has also taken part as a composer in a
number of national and transatlantic distributed musical performances.
Thorington has won numerous awards and commissions, most recently for
9.11.01 Scapes and Calling to Mind, which is currently in a traveling
exhibition in Europe. She founded and produced the national weekly radio
series, New American Radio (1987-98) and has published many essays, articles
and reviews, most recently in two issues of Contemporary Music Review.
