Composition for Synthesizer, Voice and Ice

Orbless performing live at the Berkeley Art Museum April 15th 2012.
Debut performance of a new piece "Composition for Synthesizer, Voice and Ice" (2012) in 4.1 Surround with video response made by Kelly Lynn Jones.
The piece was created as a visual response to the Paul Kos piece "The Sound of Ice Melting" (1970) which was on display at the Berkeley Art Museum as part of the touring exhibition "State of Mind: New California Art since 1970".
This video was recorded during the debut performance by Kelly Lynn Jones. The sd card was formatted as Fat32 therefore the camera stopped recording once it his 4GB so the rest of the video shows still images from the performance. The audio was recorded by Aaron Harbour and mixed with the video by Collin McKelvey.
Orbless is the solo sonic output of Oakland based artist Collin McKelvey.
This was part of the L@te and E@rly series of performances at the Berkeley Art Museum and was curated by Land and Sea, an Oakland based fine arts publishing house and record label.
