Telling is an installation that combines video, storytelling, and music. It explores the states of being afraid and unafraid, and in this way it questions what it is to be human. Wallace and other storytellers share memories from their pasts, interlaced with jam sessions; Hougland’s use of sounds and voices weaves a provocative city-scape; Greer utilizes filmed landscapes to bind together the performance.
The result is an immersing experience steeped in spoken word, sound sculpture, bluegrass jams, bright lights, and contemplative music.
Initiated by faculty from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance and the Kansas City Art Institute, ArtSounds explores cross-media expression through creative concert-making.
