What happens when technology becomes obsolete? RITUAL IN TRANSFIGURED TIME combines sounds and images from the 1940s, technologies developed in the 1950s, and the unique sonorities of salvaged objects such as the innards of old toy pianos, and journeys through the improbable soundscapes of the past century. With new works from Arlene Sierra and Kathy Hinde, the ensemble explores the ‘newness of the old’ and the strangeness of our technological archaeology.
