INSTALLATION|music project Announces Performer Lineup & Heading Toward Kickstarter Success
Today, the INSTALLATION|music collaborators announce that they have reached their Kickstarter Goal.
The live music / live painting collaborative project has drawn in performers from New Mexico, Kansas City, and around New York state - including suspension artists, a magician, and a mix of musical styles. The artists are supported by a grant from the Broome County Arts Council United Cultural Fund. Performance “sessions” (as the project dubs them) will be August 3 - 11. Throughout INSTALLATION|music, local artist AmarA will be painting a multi-piece mural while her prime collaborator jk will be live streaming the event online.
“The project began when David Bowie died,” performance painter & organizer AmarA states, “it is about transformation: Personal, physical, spiritual, social, political, global. Each performer I will be painting with brings a unique perspective, the painting is the continuity. To be bringing this kind of experimental art to the confluence and our twilight zone, and exporting it back out through the tech of the millennium is thrilling and unique.”
In addition to the support they have received on Kickstarter, I|m is being sponsored by the Bundy Museum of History and Art, Tri-Cities Opera (which will also be performing August 9), Broome Stage Referrals (IATSE Local #54), I am Horror Productions, and Sound Concepts.
“Our sponsors and grant are really covering the nuts and bolts of the installation, making it happen.” AmarA explains, “We are running the Kickstarter to go beyond and because personal interaction and investment in real and unique art creates individual character. It is how we shape our society. It is a connection that will be true as long as the painting lasts. That is why every Backer’s name is being written on the back of the canvases for posterity.”
