BLiNK Project: Soundscape 2010.1

SOUNDSCAPE is an ongoing exploration of the BLiNK Project, based upon an unprecedented synergistic interaction of music, visual art, architecture, and sound engineering. It’s basis is music, where scenarios for performance are created, rather than simply arranging musical content.

Our next performance will be at both Caprice and Underbar Lounge. Musicians play in the 2 clubs simultaneously. A lead group will perform upstairs. Their sound will be transmitted downstairs, and played on speakers throughout the space. Musicians downstairs will play in synchronization with the lead group’s sound. We are stretching an orchestra out, and you become your own composer/conductor, shaping your musical experience by moving through the space.

We hope to have you join us. Admission is $10. (21+) Come early, dine at Caprice, and make a night of it!

Date: Thursday, May 20, 2010
Time: 6:30pm - 10:30pm
Location: Underbar and Caprice Lounge
Street: 275 Tremont St across from the Wang Center
City/Town:Boston, MA

Circus Day in America new art by Patt Kelley

For the past few months I've been working on nine pieces for The Shelburne Museum in Vermont. The exhibit, entitled "Circus Day in America" showcases the sights, sounds and smells during the heyday of the circus 1870-1950. On display will be objects from the museum's own collection as well as from The John and Mable Ringling Museum. I've seen some of the posters and photographs that will be on display, and they're amazing.

For my part in the exhibit I created seven posters of noteable sideshow freaks throughout history. Serpentina, Grady Stiles the Lobster Boy, and siamese twins Millie Christine to name a few. Not to mention a nearly four foot tall poster of four legged woman Myrtle Corbin. Along with the posters I made two sculptures. One of armless lady Frances O'Connor holding a smouldering cigarette inbetween her toes, and the other of JoJo the Dog Faced Boy (using my wife's haircut clippings to cover his face and hands.)

The exhibit will be open for the museum's entire 2010 season.

May 16 - October 24
