Frequencies, an intersection of literature, music, and media that encompasses the “workin’ it out” space that all artists experience. Instead of having a single focus, Frequencies exists as a free space driven by the energy of its participants. The experience is amorphous, and those involved remain committed to every event being a work in progress.
Frequencies is brought to you by innervision sound production and mixed metaphor, a creative venture by transplants- Kara Olidge and Erin Sharkey.
This collaboration brings a new kind of party to the Buffalo soundscape. From writing to beat matching, Kara’s touched just about every form of art. She attributes her love of creative expression to growing up in New Orleans and being hooked on post-colonial theory. Erin hails from the Siamese cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, where she started to write poetry by painting on walls and throwing rent parties to help her friends get by. Fellow poets – Chantal Panepento and others, will join Erin on the mic.
A mixture of story and sound, of poem and pulse, of reading and rhythm, a gathering of increasing intensity. Come to share in the process. This cool event takes place this month at Hallwalls (Con)temporary Art Center @ 698 Main St. Buffalo- to journey from ambient to rhythm driven poetry to party. Saturday, May 28, 2005 from 9pm until late. $5 cover at the door, cash bar.
Frequencies will take place once a month somewhere. Just make sure that you are in tune. All are welcome. Open mic sign up until 9:30.
