Spring Photos: lucky dragons: Other Transformations Performance

On Sunday, March 3, 2019 A performance by Los Angeles-based experimental music group lucky dragons and Wesleyan community members took place on the final day of the Audible Bacillus exhibition.

Other Transformations is an experiment. It asks: What is fundamentally necessary for an image to be read as music? How do images translate between musical idea, performance, and the experience of listening? By sourcing from a vast archive of graphic musical representations, can we discover common patterns to use as access points and guidelines for performance? By reducing symbolic musical language to its basic forms, interpolating between different representations, and generating hybrids, mimics, and transitional shapes, what new models can we build for thinking musically with images?
