Please join us this Friday August 31st at 8pm for the culinary and musical conclusion of Tomato quintet by Chris Chafe (Composer) and Nikolaos Hanselmann (Visuals) and Greg Niemeyer (Cook). Last week, 5 cases of different varieties of tomatoes (from Chafe’s garden) were installed at Machine Project. During this periond, we recorded the ripening process by tracking the changes in CO2 that the ripening produced. This data has been stored as a time series, compressed along the time axis, and translated into changes to a musical scale. Friday at 8pm musicians Lewis Keller and Cat Lamb will perform a live musical intrepretation of the score, while Greg transforms the tomato composers into dinner.
We have twenty seats open for a formal dinner of the quintet at 6:30pm. The dinner is free, with reservations accepted on a first come, first served basis. Bring your own wine. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. Following the dinner, the gallery is open to all at 8pm to hear the performance and sample the cooking in a more informal manner.
Finally, and as if that wasn't enough fun, we'll be joined by a ice cream truck karokee theater at 9:30.
