Ten x Ten release event this Saturday
I'm stoked to be a part of the Ten x Ten project this year! Full scoop on the series is below:
Ten x Ten 2013 investigates the relationship between color and sound. Through exploring the underlying concepts of synesthesia, both academically and intuitively, artists and composers have worked together to produce artwork that takes the form of both a fine art print and an original score.
10 Chicago artists were paired with 10 Chicago contemporary (classical) music composers to each produce a work. Using a joint statement of intent as a focus, each visual artist has created one 10 inch by 10 inch scale print, published by Spudnik Press Cooperative. And each composer wrote a piece performed and recorded by Palomar Ensemble that is being pressed onto 12” vinyl.
The final package that will be released on Saturday, November 16, 2013 will be a suite of 10 prints and a record with 10 corresponding compositions issued on record. The entire package will be sold for $35 and includes admission to the debut concert and exhibition at Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art. This project is presented by Access Contemporary Music, Homeroom, and Spudnik Press. Tickets are available here, get 'em while they're hot.
