FRIDAY MARCH 17
Lovesphere 22 is the 22nd installment of a 67-year art festival that began in 1995 which takes place every year on the Spring Equinox.
Lovesphere is all about cross-pollinating genres and creating new audience experiences, and Lovesphere 22 will be pushing the envelope in new and innovative ways. GPS will be loaded with improvising musicians, each of whom carries a transistor radio. At 8pm, Lovesphere will broadcast a live solo musician— the great Laurent Estoppey— from WUAG-FM, and the musicians at GPS and across the world will accompany them. So, as one walks through the gallery, one can hear the same lead instrument with a constantly shifting rhythm section. Also, other musicians and groups can accompany from home or across the country, and we will later collect some of these recordings and mix them together— making it the largest recording studio ever created. Musicians include Ben Singer of Modern Robot, Dan Ruccia of Cyanotype, Vattel Cherry (the legend), Gwen Young of Knives of Spain, Gregory Miles Hoffman of Cenote, Sara Jane Mann of Van Reipen Collective and 1=0, and Andrew Beach. Also starring performance artist Lu Xu.
