In Plain Listen
Join us for this two-part evening event guided by artist, magician, and researcher Jeanette Andrews, featuring the NYC premiere of Andrews’s “In Plain Listen,” which uses a Morse-code-based musical notation system to create a musical score that depicts the secret of one of the oldest pieces of magic in history purely in music form, and performed in tandem with the original magic effect. The cellist who will be playing the work is Iva Casian Lakos. And “In Plain Listen” was originally commissioned by and funded by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts at the University of Houston.
This is followed by a performed dialogue on the cultural evolution of magic with Charlotte Kent, PhD (professor of visual culture at Montclair State University). Jeanette Andrews has had work commissioned by Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and Quebec City Biennial. She is a prior Affiliate of Harvard’s metaLAB and had work profiled by PBS and The New York Times.
