ICE Conversation: Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices

ICE Conversation: Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices
Wednesday, March 28 at Noon
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160

Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices presents on their artistic practices, aesthetic philosophy, and concert programming. A Miami-based organization, Inlets organizes concert series that explore radical forms of sonic expression and unconventional performance contexts.

They perform their own works and that of other experimental artists from around the world. Their repertoire redefines the concert format, the role of the artist, and the relationship between artist, performer, and audience member. Many of their pieces are performed outdoors or in casual environments from inside retail stores to inside cars. Their art often has the effect of highlighting the profundity and complexity behind even the simplest performative actions and relationships.
