The second live performance installment of the Aldrich Box, a year-long traveling exhibition, is Transonic Homes, a solo violin performance by musician, composer, and collaborator Laura Ortman (White Mountain Apache).

Ortman describes the performance, “from the rosined-out beast of tough stained violin emerges deranged crumpled wings twirling in starlight and oil slickness and shininess; bearing heavy use of amplification and effects, she also incorporates over-rosining to add smoke, dust, wind and slow-motion grittiness in her scored / improvised compositions for amplified violin, Apache violin, whistles, tree branches, slides, guitar picks, bells, field recordings, and tuning fork.”

The performance will take place outdoors in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden, weather permitting.
