Brooklyn, NY – If a sculpture is the art of making two or three-dimensional representations or abstract forms, then how do we apply that model to the creation of music? Are we able to hear dimensions and listen for different parts similar to the way we can walk around a sculpture and see different parts? Which musician creates stability? Which is peppering the ensemble with colors? Which musicians are syncing up on a psychic level? In every performance, Shayna Dulberger asks the audience to explore what they are watching and listening to.
Inspired by minimalist Anthony Caro’s steel sculpture Bitter Sky (1983), bassist and 2019 Roulette resident artist Shayna Dulberger has invited musicians Fay Victor, Ava Mendoza, and Juan Pablo Carletti to explore sound dimensions through improvisation. Bitter Sky is made of steel with bolts and seams that are very visible: layers and layers of parts with nothing hidden—an obvious parallel to watching a band perform.
