If on an april night, a blueroom...









Blueroom, in its third season of weekly multimedia/musical experimentation events, opens its doors and dancefloor to 8 residents at the American Academy in Rome, who will fill the space with a set of site-specific audio/visual interventions and installations. One of its participants, Joshua Mosley, goes on to participate in the Biennale Art 52nd International Art Exhibition.

On April 21st, Open Video Projects, Blueroom and Rialtosantambrogio are hosts to a multi-room spatial intervention conceptualized by current American Academy in Rome resident composer Ken Ueno and former resident Jose Parral.  The second spatial analysis to be carried-out by the two fellows in Rome within public space, this project utilizes sound, visual projections, and installation interventions to investigate movement density within the rialto sant'ambrogio space over the course of the Blueroom evening. While guests participate in the evening, their own movement and interactions in fact determine its course.

The central audio/visual element of this project utilizes the real-time movement of guests as the source of its own audio/visual output.  A ratio is created from the movement density recorded in real-time and data recorded from a past Blueroom evening; this ratio is then projected as a function of the changing densities in the evening of April 21st. Other sonic/visual interventions will be provided by visual artist residents Patricia Cronin, John Kelly and Joshua Mosley and architect Thomas Tsang who will also create a free poster that maps the spatial interventions and can be cut-out to form an architectural model.

Sound and visual projections will be accompanied by site-specific architectural installations.  These include landscape architect Willet Moss's "Resonant Topography" (an environment created from found materials whose visual presence depends on the flow of inhabitants within the space) as well as an installation in the rialto sant'ambrogio main bar area that visually records movement density through light.
Ken Ueno (extended vocals, laptop) will also perform a live electro-acoustic set of experimental improvisation with Italian musicians Marco Maurizi (Plays guitar, Fostex x-26, found objects), Crisitano Luciani (drums, homemade electronics, found objects), and Marco Visconti-Prasca (baritone saxophone).
