PARTS ARE EXTRA | process blog 

Working remotely (with Peter in Stockholm and myself in New York), we created this process blog as the shared walls of our virtual studio—a place to post snippets of the ideas, sound, text and images that inspire us and fuel the development of our work. A chronological record of our thinking in the early stages of the project.

Peter Norrman • Christina CampanellaPARTS ARE EXTRA
a sound and cinema project
February 2nd & 3rd, 2012, HERE Arts Center (NYC): Christina Campanella & Peter Norrman perform live music in concert with a selection of short, experimental films taken from their 12-part series Parts Are Extra, an art platform with which to investigate the elusive language of cinema. Blending sonic collage with documentary-style footage and re-purposed archival recordings in both media, the duo creates a starkly fantastical universe of dystopian landscapes and eerie, dreamlike worlds. Driven by a live score of deconstructed electronic art songs, fractured narratives of uncharted journeys, spaces of transition, modern decay and the fragility of the natural world are subtly revealed.

I’m currently creating the sound installation Breathe, for “Arthur Ganson: Kinetic Mandala,” a showing of machine art by the Boston-based scupltor. A response to Ganson’s Machine with Breath, 1992, Breathe is live processing and composition of the sound of the work’s mechanical bellows, made audible via wireless headphones throughout the gallery. Opening reception with artist talks on November 2nd 2011.

A panel discussion with curator Daniel  Mason and artists Arthur Ganson, Christina Campanella, Chehalis Hegner,  and Randall Okita will take place on November 2 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.  in the Adler Theater, and will be followed by an opening reception from 5  to 7 p.m. An artist and curator talk will be held at 6 p.m. in the  Kresge Gallery.
