CSULB Assistant Professor Katie Grinnan to have performance at Palm Springs Museum

Posted on February 27, 2019 by School of Art

Instruments in studioCSULB Assistant Professor in Sculpture Katie Grinnan will be included in an event called Desert, Why? presented by Desert X and the Palms Springs Art Museum. Her performance entitled 5 Seconds of Dreaming will be performed with Kozue Matsumoto and Eugene Moon on March 3rd, 2019 at 5pm in the Annenberg Theatre at the Palm Springs Art Museum. In 5 Seconds of Dreaming, Grinnan uses readings from an EEG device during her 2015 sleep study. These five seconds of the electrical waves or delta brainwaves are extracted from an eight-hour stream of data. In this final version of her series, an instrument will be created and performed, playing the information housed in two quadrants of her neural networks that control sensory information and motion. Most of these parts are quieter during sleep and relate more to translating the external world. The composition will be dictated by the structure of the data translated into notes and improvisations determined by the musicians. Congratulations Prof. Grinnan!
