Join The Noise Gallery for an evening a live composition that represents the day to day, and minute to minute lives of those living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Alzheimer’s disease is responsible for a loss of communication between cells, affecting memory, thinking, and communication. Experience for yourself the sights, sounds, and sensations of living life in the moment.
A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to support SPARK! Cultural Programs for people with Memory Loss.
The Noise Gallery is Denver’s first fully dedicated Soundpainting ensemble. Made up of some of the area’s best improvisers, classical and jazz players, composers, electronic musicians, weirdos, and visual artist instrument builders, The Noise Gallery is the perfect collective of spontaneous and creative thinking in the art of live composition. Expanding minds and challenging norms, we invite everyone to enter the Gallery and be adventurous listeners.
Soundpainting is the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual Artists. Presently (2016) the language comprises more than 1200 gestures that are signed by the Soundpainter (composer) to indicate the type of material desired of the performers. The creation of the composition is realized, by the Soundpainter, through the parameters of each set of signed gestures. The Soundpainting language was created by Walter Thompson in Woodstock, New York in 1974.
