Ven Voisey presents a multi-channel audio performance within his current Roswell Museum and Art Center exhibition, Unfinished Animal at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13.
The RMAC, located at 100 W. 11th St., will be holding Voisey’s closing performance.
Utilizing a dense ensemble of manipulated karaoke backing tracks, Voisey’s composition is a reorientation and reexamination of these disposable, inauthentic and often overly-mechanical reproductions of original songs created to back the untrained voices of aspiring barroom entertainers. This manipulation of manipulated pop culture will be broadcast through a varied array of home stereo equipment strewn throughout the museum. Serving as a closing event for the exhibition, this free performance presents a circumstance in which it is incomprehensible to remember the words, futile to fill in the missing voices, and impossible to finish.
