Watkins professor Morgan Higby-Flowers organized a weekend residency with School of the Art Institute of Chicago professor James Connolly, who creates instruments by hacking old audio/visual equipment. On Saturday, May 2nd at Coop Gallery in the Arcade, Connolly will perform RGB.VGA.VOLT, a work performed on a synthesizer made from cathode ray tube monitors. According to Connolly, the synthesizer was inspired by Nam June Paik’s television synthesizers and the early video synth, the Sandin Image Processor.
There will be two performances: one at 7 p.m. and another at 8 p.m. While you’re at the Arcade, enjoy the rest of the Downtown Art Crawl. Joe Nolan at the Nashville Scene has the details on the rest here.
