Wednesday Night Live: ‘Sisters With Transistors’ + Experimental Music by Nelly Kate
January 5 @ 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
See the film Sisters With Transistors, the remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and liberating technologies to transform how music is produced and listened to today.
To set the stage for the Mint Museum’s screening of Sisters with Transistors, artist Nelly Kate presents an experimental music performance using an array of tape decks, speakers, synthesizers, and layered vocal effects. These mechanisms nod at the history of electronic music by demonstrating the limitations of lo-fi recording equipment alongside the expansive dynamic range of contemporary sound technology. As a partially deaf sound artist, Nelly Kate is focused on creating multiple points of access for the audience to experience listening as a somatic phenomenon that transcends hearing alone.
Wednesday Night Live, presented by Bank of America, is a collaboration between The Mint Museum, The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, and Blumenthal Performing Arts’ Knight Theater. Visitors have free admission to the three museums 5-9 PM every Wednesday, as well as live entertainment or programming at one of the four institutions. The weekly entertainment will rotate each week between the four venues.
