Ryoichi Kurokawa

May 3, 2013

Ryoichi Kurokawa’s audiovisual work syn_ obscures familiar everyday imagery with vibrating, impossibly detailed geometric constellations. Performed live on dual projection screens, his visuals are accompanied with clouds of sound that pulse in accord to construct a sensory experience of overwhelming energy.

Reservations are recommended and can be made in person at the box office or over the phone at 518.276.3921. Tickets will be available for pick-up starting at 6PM the evening of the performance; they must be claimed by 7:45PM or they will be released.
