DARKSOFT presents a combination of sonic improvisation, performance art, and interactive experimentation.
ELECTRIC PETTING ZOO
MAY 26-28 2018 :: 12-8P :: FANEUIL HALL - BOSTON, MA
Darksoft’s ELECTRIC PETTING ZOO (Tara Toms, cskonopka) is an interactive installation and improvised performance event.
Using a wide array of electronic and analog equipment, instruments, recording software, and video synthesizers, ELECTRIC PETTING ZOO invites passers-by to engage a self-paced, free-form creative process. The sounds and images that guests generate will be collected and sampled in a cumulative recording session which will be released as a finished audio/visual composition after the installation ends.
ELECTRIC PETTING ZOO seeks meaningful creative impact by breaking open and making accessible the transformative nature of improvisation.
featuring Tara Toms & Sean Saman
The first official set, titled "Web", debuted in March 2018 at The Armory Center for the Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. Tara constructs a web with assistance from the audience, and interacts with the web while seeking personal catharsis through vocalizations and meditative movement. Sean Saman contributes live sonic improvisation throughout.
