MELLOWDRAMA by Courtney Smith & Iván Navarro at Hotel Particulier

(c) Marsin Mogielski Hotel Particulier presented an experimental collaborative artwork between artists Courtney Smith and Ivan Navarro entitled MELLOWDRAMA. A multifunctional, sculptural “stage” environment designed by Courtney Smith, was transformed by a series of performances by Ivan Navarro, Sokio, Offending Command and Recipol (Courtesy of Hueso Records.) Using bass-lines, electric guitar noise, and exploring the maximalist side of dance music. The composition of sounds contrasted with the performance and video intervention of hydrogen peroxide trickled inside the ear of one of the performers creating a sculptural response to the ephemeral electronic sounds. While earwax literally effervesces and rumbles inside the performer’s ear, the public experienced it on a large screen projection, which showed the image of the murmuring ear during the length of the performance.
