New Musical Resources-Exploring Acoustic/Kinetic Objects
From Humanities Center
Kinetic Sculptor, Sound Artist and Musician
Over a long and distinguished career, the artist known as Trimpin has taken the term “mixed media” as far as anyone. His works incorporate music, art, science, engineering and theater to create a “symphony of actions.” In this presentation, Trimpin shares photos of his creations – many of them made from objects he finds in junkyards and thrift stores – that explore the physics of sound and movement. He has performed with symphony orchestras and the Kronos String quartet, and his installations, both temporary and permanent, can be found in numerous countries.
