Yarn/Wire & Katherine Young: BIOMES 4.1

Add to Calendar
Katherine Young’s installation BIOMES 4.1 is part of an ongoing series of works for electronic and acoustic instruments that invites performers to respond to an environment of sound and light analogous to a physical ecosystem. Young assembles an archive of photographic documentation, video, and field recordings on a specific ecological biome—the desert, the marshlands, etc.—and works with performers to develop improvisational strategies and tools that respond to both the materials and the electroacoustic compositions that Young projects throughout the space.

This latest in her series of works was created for the ensemble Yarn/Wire, and is an iteration on an earlier work BIOMES 4.0, which premiered at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn in September 2021. Her installation will run throughout First Friday, as well as during gallery hours for the weekend of January 7–9. The installation will be activated by the performers for a ticketed evening concert on 1/8.
