Seeking ways to still connect with other performers during a pandemic, Dilate Ensemble met while participating in the NowNet Arts Lab Ensemble led by Sarah Weaver. As a satellite group we dove into an exploration of how we might be able to engage in audio/visual improvisation online given the available technologies. Kim had compressed her work in video installation to fit beneath her kitchen table creating an intimate live “venue” that readily accommodates a convergence of online live presence.
The title AERIAL refers to the desire for the long view, the perspective that allows for both observation from a distance and inspired understanding in charting one's course. Consistently playing with the perception of scale in Kim's micro installations, "Aerial" reflects a tenuousness of solidity--stability and instability.
Dilate Ensemble is an audio visual collective featuring:
Carole Kim: micro video installation
Gloria Damijan: extended toy pianos, percussion
Scott L. Miller: Kyma
Luisa Muhr: voice
Jon Raskin: sax, voice, concertina, electronics, recycled materials
