This is a stripped down workshop presentation/rehearsal of the work in progress of 3by3by3 a collaborative project between Rhys Chatham, Raphaele Shirley and GH Hovagimyan.
The work is an interactive immersive performance. Rhys Chatham plays solo or with a combo in his signature minimalist style. Rapahele Shirley creates site specific light sculptures and environments and G.H. Hovagimyan controls the lights via a custom interface using gestural recognition. G.H. responds to Rhys’ music via his gestures which control Shirley’s lights. The audience views the work from around and within, immersed in this multi sensory experience.
