María Elena González, detail of Camo (Boogie), 2015. FEB 6, 2019 TREE TALK: VARIATIONS ON IMPRESSION 7:00 pm, ART MUSEUM Marc Zollinger, John Ivers, and Dirt and Copper will perform works generated from María Elena González’ birch tree rubbings which will be on display for her exhibition Tree Talk. In collaboration with González, the composers translate the visual, gestural, and topographic data found in the tree rubbings into scores to be premiered at the event. This transmission of information from optical to aural describes synesthesia: the phenomena by which the stimulation of one sensory receptor, such as vision, activates a secondary sensory reaction, such as hearing
