Opening August 26, 5:30 pm - 7 pm
On opening night only, performances of Gustavo and Gaelyn Aguilar’s mini-opera, Absence of Answers, loosely based on Philip K. Dicks's novel Ubik and the Krsk nuclear submarine tragedy, are scheduled every 15 minutes from 5:30 to 7 pm. RSVP’s are encouraged.

Installations include works of
Zach Poff + N.B.Aldrich, Witnesses: Trikaya. The latest in a series of installations in which a group of electronic Buddhist chant-boxes create a spontaneous sound composition in response to projected images.
Ranjit Bhatnagar and Anne Hollænder, Water the Sounds. Site-specific installation responding to our emotions of despair due to climate change. Self-playing reed instruments swell and breathe music composed on-site as visitors interact with water and organisms collected from the bay.
Leslie Ross, tide wave. A quadraphonic installation in which each change from mud flats to high tide and back is transformed into corresponding and overlapping soundwaves.
Ranjit Bhatnagar, still spaces. An installation about contemplation and stillness, in which the soundscape is controlled by the movement of incense smoke, and any breath or movement will disturb the smoke and disrupt the sound.
Gustavo and Gaelyn Aguilar, Absence of Answers. Loosely based on Philip K. Dicks's novel Ubik and the Krsk nuclear submarine tragedy, Absence of Answers is a mini-opera for two performers and multi-media.

On September 9th two additional installations join the exhibit. There will be a SECOND OPENING at 6pm, with a concert at 7:30pm. More information and announcements to follow.
