Brian Siskind inside “Airshaft (to Piranesi)”


Musician, composer, producer and Theatre Intangible participant Brian Siskind collaborated with renowned multimedia artist Ana Maria Tavares in a new installation at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The four-sided immersive video Airshaft (to Piranesi) is the centerpiece to Tavares’ exhibition Deviating Utopias. This is a HUGE deal, and if you consider yourself a supporter of Nashville experimental and electronic artists, you need to experience this collaboration.

The Frist page has the details:

The centerpiece of this exhibition is [Tavares’] four-sided immersive video, Airshaft (to Piranesi), 2008, comprising sequences of elaborate interiors as seen from multiple perspectives in constant motion.

Tavares’s immersive video is accompanied by Nashville composer Brian Siskind’s Niterói, water that hides. This sonic collage brings together mid-century/post-war orchestral vinyl, recontextualized into a dark, deep, and teeming sound environment.

Ana Maria Tavares: Deviating Utopias closes January 12th, 2014.
