Derrick Adams’ “The Entertainer”

March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Entertainer is an original performance that incorporates a musical interpretation of white, gray, and black noise composed by Philippe Treuille and a projection by Ramon Silva with Adams’ live performance. Adams acts as a human Beatbox, mimicking the sounds echoing from a TV, microphone, and speaker, while including sound bites from media programming. The graphic imagery is inspired by the bold formal structure of Russian Constructivist propaganda used in advertising and broadcasting. The piece is a commentary on the effects of media bombardment in today’s society.
