Proximity Music

Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork is an artist based in Los Angeles with a background in history of communication technologies, acoustics, computer music and contemporary dance. Her work has been described as exploring the “choreographic potential of sound”. She plays with sound and architecture, often introducing sculptural elements that modulate how we listen, see and navigate space. The human voice and the human body play a central role in her work. Through the use of both speech and song, language unfolds in it’s sonic, semantic and affective dimensions. For Proximity Music: Sensing After Thought, Jacqueline Kiyomi Gork will be presenting a new version, adjusted to the space of Amare, of The input of this machine is the power an output contains: a durational performance investigating public speech. A performer is asked to recite an AI-generated text created with a machine learning system trained on political speeches. The voice is processed by electroacoustic means shifting between intelligibility and unintelligibility. Visitors are invited to come and go at any time and explore the textual and acoustic space together with the performers. This project was created for the exhibition Made in LA: 2020 a version at Hammer Museum with support from VIA Art Fund.

Proximity Music takes place from 8 - 10 April. Find out more here.
