Prepared and processed slide projectors. The photoacoustic continuum of mpld’s projection slowly flows into the performance space carrying fragments from unidentified places and times. Fades and cuts play with memory’s subjective persistence, as light and darkness keep carving out each one from the other. The mechanical sounds of this projection are tapped and processed to become its own soundtrack. Color, density, texture, frequency become simultaneous qualities of the light and the sound, as they are explored in a way somewhat analogue to the distorted enlargement of a magnifying glass. mpld is Gill Arno’s mixed media performance and installation project. Born in Milan (Italy), Gill studied art and typography before moving to NYC in 1997. He has been since then designing record covers and art directing small record labels, as well as creating multi-dimensional environments as part of mixed media experimental events and parties. http://m-i-c-r-o.net/mpld http://m-i-c-r-o.net/gill presented in association with Phonomena.
