Drill Wide Open by David Stout at the Dallas Contemporary

Media performance artist, David Stout will premiere a new live cinema work titled Drill Wide Open at the Dallas Contemporary Thurs., October 7, at 7:00 p.m. The work is part of the New Sounds for a New Space series addressing sound, space, and place curated by composer Christina Rusnak.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
FREE for members of any arts organizations in Dallas
Non-members enter for $10.

Drill Wide Open is a performance merging 3D animation, electronic sound, and visual abstraction into a distinctly musical expression of live cinema. Mining the approaches of early analog video art, glitch-noise practice, and current data visualization techniques, the work is a meditation on the expansive vistas, elemental forces, manifest displacement, and industrialization of the west. The piece, conceived as a reflective painterly evocation of time and place, has been specifically created for its premiere at the Dallas Contemporary.
