[ISEA2012] Artists Statement: Christopher Marianetti & Mary Margaret Moore – Symphony 505

Artists Statement

516 ARTS presents Symphony 505 by composer Christopher Marianetti and dancer/ choreographer Mary Margaret Moore, who create a ‘symphony’ in which lowrider cars become the instruments of a new music and dance work. As music emanates from the cars’ internal sound systems, the cars become like a vehicular orchestra, each car sonically projecting a different part of the whole composition. The drivers manneuver their ‘instruments’ in a spatial choreography. Before the performance, the audience will have the opportunity to play or DJ the cars. After the show, the audience can meet the cars, drivers and artists. The participating car club is the Down Low Car Club.  youtube.com/watch?time_continue=106&v=QKgA3CDDVQA        cnet.com/news/lowrider-symphony-hot-hopping-car-orchestra-performs
