The Milliken Art Gallery will feature a mixed media installation combining visual art and music in Circumpliance. The exhibition will feature original music composition by Dr. Peter B. Kay paired with sculptural elements using pieces of decommissioned pianos and collaboratively installed by Kay, Kris Neely, Assistant Professor and Coordinator for Studio Art at Wofford College and Lynn Rhodes.
The sculpted piano parts and the 88 electronic music tracks of “Circumpliance” will shape the experience in the Milliken Art Gallery. The music is made-up of 88 unique stereo tracks that comprise over four hours of unrepeated audio. Using the random playback feature on three separate 2-channel digital audio devices, the music will play continuously for the duration of the installation. Because of the exceedingly high number of permutations possible, the resulting music will almost assuredly be unique with each visit to the exhibit site.
The exhibition will run from February 4 – March 3, 2016. Kay, Neely and Rhodes will present a Gallery Talk on February 4th at 6:00 pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00 pm.
