About In & Around C (2012)

In & Around C is a participatory music and art installation that will incorporate live musical performances. The piece will take place at Gallery One Twenty Eight in New York City and will be the first collaboration between NCP and Ms. Mohre. 

In In & Around C (2012), Mohre purposefully draws attention to space with five large vinyl lines that meet the gallery entrance. This enlarged music staff welcomes participants before retreating to circumnavigate the gallery. Participants are pulled sonically and visually towards performing ensembles that are reading and interpreting the “notes” on the staff. These “notes” consist of the heads of the participants, which are captured via a webcam and transmitted to a wall-mounted screen. In the interim between live performances, a program designed by Gabe Taubman, In C++, will convert participants’ figures into musical notation and sound. 

Presented by The Nouveau Classical Project / Produced by Sugar Vendil / Production Assistants: Tara Scott & Yoobin Whang / Video Genius: Robert Allen

Community Engagement

The goal of In & Around C is to create a deeper level of engagement between art and the public through physical and aural immersion.In & Around C is a piece where audience participation is a major component. By being invited to touch the art, audience members become not only observers but part of the art as well. 

We are raising funds here on Kickstarter to cover the costs of materials and production so that we can make the exhibition a free admission event and allow more people to experience In & Around C!
