_ The CSAA presents: Flight Song_

On Saturday, April 19 from 6 to 8 pm, CSAA is proud to present Flight Song, an immersive sound installation by Sari Carel.

Approaching Bushwick’s Silent Barn as a natural ecosystem unto itself, Carel spent the past four months making field recordings of creaks, murmurs and disembodied voices from within the renowned DIY arts center. Weaving these strands of sound together, Flight Song traverses time and re-mixes architecture and space to create a sonic landscape by using the tools of ornithology and zoology.

The sound piece is accompanied by mixed-media works on paper that draw inspiration from modernist architecture and discarded urban detritus such as lost coins and molted feathers. Together these disparate elements transform notions of the visual and the auditory into delayed reminders of each other.

The opening of Flight Song will be accompanied by a live performance by composer and musician, David Maxwell who will create an improvisational work as an aleatory response to Carel’s sound collage.
