Disquiet Objects brings Claire Cronin’s psychic songwriting to the visitors of Monte Vista by inviting the public to share their personal items as source material for her work. Based on a belief that the objects we live with are alive with an invisible charge, Cronin began to experiment with Psychometry—the intuitive art of reading the energy held in things.
For each week of her residency at Monte Vista, the artist will select one of the borrowed objects and channel a song based on the impressions she gathers. At the end of the residency, on September 18th, there will be a performance of the four finished songs and a closing reception, when all items will be returned to their owners.
This Saturday (September 18) is the closing for Claire Cronin's show, "Disquiet Objects" at Monte Vista. come by between 7 and 10 pm to pick up your objects, see the work, and enjoy a performance of the nine songs Claire wrote during her residency.
About the songs, Claire says:
the music should start at 9 pm and last for about 20 or 30 minutes.
though i had intended to only write songs about four of the objects, i ended up creating nine of them! come see which objects were selected as source material. if you are unable to make the closing and need to retrieve your object, contact monte vista about coming another time.
