Sound performance with Akinori Matsumoto and guest artist Michael Pestel
May 18, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Michael Pestel will be joining Matsumoto in a live performance of improvisation, interacting with the sights and sounds of the Flinn Gallery installation. Pestel builds architectural sound installations related to bird song and bird extinction. He has performed in those installations on flutes and various invented hybrid instruments and sound devices such as the birdmachine, pianotable, and birdrawingtable. His passion for birds and their risk of extinction has inspired and informed his performances with living birds in aviaries, forests, parks, shrines, and bird preserves in North America, Europe, Japan, and Australia. Pestel and Akinori have collaborated previously with enchanting performances at the Flinn Gallery as well as in Japan.
