Lional “Brother El” Freeman performs a series of four Live PA electronic compositions commissioned in conjunction with Solidary & Solitary.

Performed in the galleries, each installment is designed for a different section of the exhibition and explores the relationship between abstraction and blackness reflecting on questions of distance and anonymity, chance, blurring and erasure, and invisibility.

Brother El will incorporate a series of synthesizers, samplers, sequencers, and fx as part of the works.
