Jon Bellona, 4th year Ph.D. student presents a sound art and intermedia art installation Recurrent Constructions

Jon Bellona, 4th year Ph.D. student in the McIntire Department of Music at the University of Virginia presents a sound art and intermedia art installation. The exhibition, Recurrent Constructions, by Harmonic Laboratory, an Art Collective of artists, thinkers, educators and innovators.  Harmonic Laboratory (http://harmoniclab.org) consists of Choreographer/Dancer Brad Garner, Composer/Musician Jeremy Schropp, Animator/Programmer John Park, and Intermedia Artist/Programmer Composer Jon Bellona. “The mission is to integrate art, science, and the humanities in the development of creative works that tell stories and unpack the dense cultural content around us.” The installation features seven works in the Duke Gallery in Duke Hall at James Madison University, September 5 – October 15. Works include #Carbonfeed, where users may listen to sounds created by live tweets from around the world (carbonfeed.org); and Aqua•litative, where 40 years of California water data is converted into kinetic movement and acoustic sound (aqualitative.org).  Duke Gallery is in Duke Hall located on S Main St in Harrisonburg, VA.  See a video of Harmonic Lab “Recurrent Constructions Exhibit”  and a news release at http://bit.ly/recurrentconstructions.  More about Jon at http://jpbellona.com/.

Jon Bellona will be giving a lecture on Data-Driven Music on Oct. 6th at 6p in Duke Gallery, followed by a gallery tour.
