Alva Noto – Xerrox: A Performance at the Lensic Theater with special guest Richard Davine and Scott Pagano
Alva Noto is the stage name of the Berlinbased audio/visual artist Carsten Nicolai, whose work comprises images, installations, and music. A leading artist among current electronic sound and visual designers using art and music as hybrid tools, his works consistently captivate through elegance, simplicity, and cool technique. The compressions, multiplications, scale changes, and shifts in resolution to which alva noto subjects his sources become both the process and the content of xerrox. Nicolai’s work is featured in SITE Santa Fe’s Sixth International Biennial.
Nicolai has exhibited and performed in major galleries and festivals world-wide, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; NTT, Tokyo; Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin; and the Venice Biennale. Nicolai won the prestigious Ars Electronica Golden Nica prize in 2000 and 2001.
Richard Devine will open for alva noto. Based in Atlanta, Devine is at the cutting edge of sound design and musical composition. During the past three years he has released four full-length albums on Schematic, Warp, Asphodel, and Sublight records, remixed top Warp artists like Aphex Twin and Mike Patton, and performed his own ear-tearing music mayhem worldwide. Devine is the sound designer for Wrekage, a Keep Adding exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Arts, opening on Saturday, September 23 at 6 pm.
