For one evening, one point in time, one nexus of space, the convergence and opening of dimensions simultaneously — The Palladium is transformed into a place of sound and movement experimentation designed by new renaissance artist The Honourable Elizabeth A. Baker and interdisciplinary artist Jinghong Zhang, alongside local Tampa Bay and Sarasota artists John C. O’Leary, III, Tihda Vongkoth, Melanie Lavender, and Kristopher James blending poetry and music.
This evening involves immersive performances of sound, poetry, and visuals. It incorporates one-of-a-kind musical instruments, the “Heaven and Earth” designed and played by Jinghong Zhang as well as “Black Moon Lilith” a double-sided non-resonant amplified zither designed by John C. L. Jansen and played by The Honourable Elizabeth A. Baker. Elizabeth pairs her unique instrument with a veritable spaceship incorporating multiple computers and semi-modular analog synths. Jinghong pairs his instrument with movement and interactive technologies.
The power of language with collaborative influence as a thread in the sonic world takes stage with original poetry by Melanie Lavender and Kristopher James, alongside music by Yamaha Artist John C. O. Leary, III (piano/synth) of La Lucha and Tihda Vongkoth (percussion) of Modern Marimba.
