Pull Through

October 20th
Ongoing from 4 to 9pm
With performances at 6 & 8pm

Pull Through by Wages is a sound installation with conceptual/musical performances interspersed. At its core, the entire piece is about the ambiguous nature of being: the intersection of finite and infinite. Each performed piece symbolizes a segment of the life cycle, with each second symbolizing the space of a day (to illustrate, 365 days = 365 seconds, or a little over 6 minutes to complete a year). The first theme begins at conception, with following themes tracking the life of this imagined individual and their brief experience of being human, ending with a re-entrance into the infinite.

Instrumentally, Pull Through introduces a unique use of traditional guitars, bowing them with spooled nylon lines. The technique can be seen in the video below:
