Experimental Sound Studio brings its long running OPTION series to the Museum of Contemporary Photography with a performance by Damon Locks. The performance will take place amidst the current MoCP exhibition Beautiful Diaspora/You Are Not The Lesser Part, which also includes visual work by Locks. The performance will be followed by an interview.
Damon Locks is presenting a new sonic composition that leans into his work with poetry and spoken word. Utilizing his electronic companions: samplers, effects, and synths, Locks' new work, Isn’t It Beautiful?…Collapsing, also focuses on creating evocative relationships between found sound/words to create a complex sound collage, highlighting and centering both spoken and sampled word and the poetry that lies between.
