Project Scream

Project Scream is The Center for Integrated Media and viralnet-v4.net’s sound project for 2018-19, curated by Carmina Escobar, Fy, and Tom Leeser. A variety of performance, electronic, acoustic, noise, text, and visual artists have been invited to contemplate the meaning of the word scream and to respond by creating a sonic or written interpretation that is derived from their own personal artistic practice:

Cali’s Bellow
K. Bradford
Marisa Demarco
Erin Demastes
Carmina Escobar
Fy
Ian Battenfield Headly
Ana Iwataki
Provisional Collective
Laura Steenberge
Micaela Tobin
Tim Tsang & Parches

Project Scream grows from an interest in producing a response to these precarious times by transforming the scream into a form of wisdom and compassion. An example of this artistic transformation is the wrathful Buddhist deity, Hayagriva, who is depicted in Tibetan thangka painting as using sound in a ferocious form to achieve an enlightened state.

The project will be posted online at viralnet-v4.net and will include an opening reception, listening party and performances.

Support for this event is provided by The Center for Integrated Media at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts)
