Sound artist Steve Roden and his uncle composer Jeff Roden, team up to present a composition inspired by the Beatitudes for the violion, cello and the harp wtih visual projections.
Steve Roden is a visual and sound artist from Los Angeles. His work includes painting, drawing, sculpture, film/video, sound installation, and performance. Roden's working process uses various forms of specific notation (words, musical scores, maps, etc.) And translates them through self invented systems into scores; which then influence the process of painting, drawing, sculpture, and sound composition. These scores, rigid in terms of their parameters and rules, are also full of holes for intuitive decisions and left turns. The inspirational source material becomes a kind of formal skeleton that the abstract finished works are built upon. Roden has performed his soundworks at various arts spaces and experimental music festivals worldwide including the Serpentine Gallery London, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, the DCA Dundee Scotland, Redcat Theater Los Angeles, as well as performance tours of Brazil and Japan.
