The Great Refusal - Live Stream

2021-06-18

Hey there!

I will be live streaming The Great Refusal on Friday, June 25th 7pm EDT, 2021, from the Dorchester Art Project in Boston.

The Great Refusal is an audiovisual performance inspired by the book Eros and Civilization by H. Marcuse. For this show, I dove into live looping and projection mapping onto a custom-built stage to extend the concert experience beyond pure music.

This project, funded by a LAB grant by the Boston Foundation, allowed me to explore musical and performative ideas I had on the backburner for a long time. By building a custom stage and learning how to do projection mapping, I expanded my music performance to be an audiovisual experience. My music craft grew as well, as I integrated sequencers, loopers, pedals, and performance software to the work I do with the Chapman Stick and my voice.

Overall, working on the show has been a great learning experience and a new phase of the Rafart project. I'm excited to share this new beginning with you.

The Greate Refusal will be streamed on my app (link button below) and on my youtube channel. It is a free show, and a coluntary contribution is possible in my app. Put it on your calendar!

This project is made possible by a Live Arts Boston grant from the Boston Foundation.
