Art & Art History presents: Century of Progress/Sleep

Colgate Department of Art and Art History and The Ho Tung Visualization Lab will play host to Paul Catanese's Century of Progress / Sleep. Century of Progress / Sleep is a cross-disciplinary opera for voice, electronics, sea drum, ship's bell, tuning fork, and live-cinema scenography. This work imagines that inanimate objects, hyperobjects and hypothetical entities, having recently acquired consciousness, immediately reject rational systems for conceptualizing 'the nature of things' and instead adopt an intellectual posture of epistemological chaos emerging from mutative half-truths, mischaracterizations of science, and lawless theories of knowledge. This work navigates a terrain of texts, electronically processed vocals and software instruments resulting in a hypnotic, mirage-like soundscape.
