100 Years of Noise: Beyoncé is ready to receive you now
presented as part of the New Original Works Festival at REDCAT
August 1, 2, & 3, 2013
featuring Mireya Lucio, Tim Reid, & Tyler Matthew Oyer
In 1913, Luigi Russolo penned his influential manifesto The Art of Noises and opened up new sonic realms for consideration. In January of 2013, Beyoncé shared reflections on her life and art with GQ magazine. Tyler Matthew Oyer places these two figures-a powerful pop diva at the top of her game and a man who sought the "great renewal of music"-in a dysfunctional dialogue across a century. With stark contrast, contradiction and absurdity, 100 Years of Noise: Beyoncé is ready to receive you now illuminates the politics of aural pleasure, past and present.
