About the performers:
ARIADNE is an experimental sacred music and new media art duo from Brooklyn, NY whose work explores the intersection of mysticism, dream analysis and the failure of digital systems through a synthesis of music performance, digital and interactive art, poetry and dramatic experience. Much of ARIADNE’s output consists of interactive audio/visual performances which employ custom built hardware and software, real-time 3D animation, and machine learning to create immersive and captivating experiences. ARIADNE’s body of work includes feature-length audio/visual albums, web-based virtual reality, and a/v installations.
Nico (Cole) is a dancer, poet, and autœthnographer. Cole’s art and research blends a philosophical, theoretical and physical exploration of making. It is a praxis that creates movement and performance installations, participatory experiences, art objects, poetry, prose and autœthnographic documentation. Cole creates with the intention to affirm making as essential to humanity. How can the creative process allow us to flow through lived/perceived states? How can making and movement influence our beliefs, theories and philosophies of existence? Nico resides in Columbus, Ohio where she performs and teaches in the community and in travel with the support of independent commissions from the Wexner Center for the Arts and grants from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
Elijah Aaron is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer.
