TOPICS IN ADVANCED FACE-MELTING: An Evening of Light and Sound FEATURING THE JESSE STILES 3000, TODD REYNOLDS, and KEVIN McCORMICK Topics in Advanced Face-melting will feature music performances by NYC’s premiere violinist, Todd Reynolds, and local laptopist, Jesse Stiles (a.k.a. The Jesse Stiles 3000). The event will be dramatically lit by dynamic light sculptures designed by the Boston-based light artist, Kevin McCormick. All three artists have created computer-based performance systems that will exploit the architectural and sonic properties of the Gasholder House, catapulting sound and light through multi-channel sound and LED systems. Pressed on the event’s peculiar name, performer Jesse Stiles defined the concept of face-melting as "a temporary loss of identity or ego (facelessness) through a medium, such as music or film." Or in this case, a giant brick dome full of gizmos. See also: conrexrecords.com/dome/
