E-fest 2021: Electric Fields - gestural sonic expansions

SUZANNE KITE (Oglála Lakȟóta)
Take Care, My Boy (2021)

A newly developed A.I. hair-braid interface performance, created with a collage of text and field recordings taken over the past six months. This piece includes experiments with A.I. text and machine learning interactions. 

Kite aka Suzanne Kite is an Oglála Lakȟóta performance artist, visual artist, and composer raised in Southern California, with a BFA from CalArts in music composition, an MFA from Bard College’s Milton Avery Graduate School, and is a PhD candidate at Concordia University. Kite’s scholarship and practice investigate contemporary Lakota ontologies through research-creation, computational media, and performance. Recently, Kite has been developing a body interface for movement performances, carbon fibre sculptures, immersive video and sound installations, as well as co-running the experimental electronic imprint, Unheard Records. Kite has also published in several journals and magazines, including in The Journal of Design and Science (MIT Press), where the award winning article, “Making Kin with Machines,” co-authored with Jason Lewis, Noelani Arista, and Archer Pechawis, was featured. Currently, she is a 2019 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholar and a 2020 Tulsa Artist Fellow.

For 2021 we set aside our traditional festival format for one more year in favour of a virtual gathering. In the past couple of years most of us have had to navigate adaptations, modifications, extensions to how we engage and interact with others in the world. Many of us have also likely spent a fair amount of time thinking about our relationship to these tools and technological mediations, and how they shape or reshape familiar boundaries – for ourselves as individuals and in our relationships. 

From October 28 to November 10 we invite you to take in five new, on-demand performance video pieces from seven artists who play with unique intersections of body and technology, exploring and transforming the blurred boundaries that define autonomy and creative agency.

On November 6 at 2PM PST we invite you to join Artistic Director Giorgio Magnanensi for an online roundtable discussion with the festival artists. Please visit https://newmusic.org/electric-fields/ for more info.
