Overview

Lozano-Hemmer is internationally recognized for his kinetic sculptures, responsive environments, and photography and video installations. His work is featured at SFMOMA this fall both with his installation Frequency and Volume and in the group exhibition Field Conditions. Join us for a special conversation with Lozano-Hemmer on radio technology and other subjects.

Following his talk Seth Horvitz, an experimental composer, will present his Eight Studies for Automatic Piano a work inspired by simple iterative processes, elegant geometry, the idiosyncratic behaviour of machines, and the works of James Tenney, György Ligeti, Conlon Nancarrow, and Charlemagne Palestine. The pieces will be performed by the Yamaha DC7 Mark III Disklavier, a modern-day player piano.
