March 5, 2017 10:30am-11:30am -- BODY / Marie Davon (Powerkompany) and Ben Rouse
Marie Davon (Powerkompany)
In an effort to express a complex topic in sonic manner, Marie Davon has shifted (if only briefly) from her usual dramatic cinematic pop to exchange dialogue through a soundscape that's subtle shift in tonality. Fresh off of the release of her band Powerkompany's two-part album "Fever and Chills," Davon dips into new experiences with sparse compositional elements that use sonic loops to create one ethereal breath. Touching on different musical themes, she creates a meandering expression of challenge, triumph, intimacy and exploration.
Benjamin Rouse is an American photographer and director living in Athens Georgia. After leaving the Mormon church at the age of 19, Benjamin has long used art to better understand the secular world around him. Self taught, he has displayed his film and photographic work throughout the South East, as well as NYC. He has worked with a number of artists both locally and internationally, including Kishi Bashi, New Madrid, Tall Tall Trees, Don Broco, Bambara, Muuy Biien. He recently directed two videos for of Montreal and has collaborated with the band on projection design. After a stint painting rorschach blots, Rouse's interest grew into his most recent project conjuring rorschach blots with the human form using mirrors. Originally a photographic series, the project quickly turned to stop motion film because "the images wanted to move."
