For The Drawing Center’s upcoming event ‘Drawing Sound III: Composing the City,’ Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky) will present a night of discussion and performance that will relate recent architecture and music projects to the broader aims of both disciplines: the search for patterns in everyday life.
Though architecture and music differ in their approach (architects define social processes through physical structure, while composers create an abstract but no less transformative experience) the two practices share a history, both using idealized mathematical models as an aesthetic basis, and each informs and drives the other, combining to produce all-encompassing media environments.
As part of ‘Drawing Sound III: Composing the City,’ composers Paul Miller and David Lang will discuss these themes with architects and designers Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Daniel Libeskind. Following the conversation, Miller will present a performance of ‘Ordos 100 REMIX,’ an interpretation of Ai Weiwei’s collaboration with architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron.
‘Imaginary Blueprints,’ 2016, a series of drawings by artist Sougwen Chung will also be featured. Chung’s project, which remixes and reworks existing architectural plans, addresses the closeness between hand-drawn and digitally-produced marks.Buy tickets/get more info now
