Man in Motion

Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
April 27, 2018

Taking inspiration from Foley artists, Man in Motion is a non-musical sound-track set to video clips of NFL football. By controlling the audience's auditory access to the video, Man in Motion illuminates both the violent and tender interactions that occur between the athletes on the field.

The sound performance to Man in Motion was presented at the MCA in collaboration with Billie Howard and Fyodor Sakhnovski, aka Amusia Collective.
