Melt I was performed live 2015-09-04 at Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa.
Melt II was performed live 2015-09-05 at PDA Gallery, Ottawa.
Both performances were part of the Coalesce Festival.
From the performance press release:
“phase transition of a substance from a solid to a liquid… when the internal energy of the solid increases” A plinth, an ice sculpture, a body and CPI. Two years after a welcomed prophylactic massectomy, Cara Tierney reflects on post-surgical corporeality as sound artist CPI sonically weaves icebergs and high-tension metals. This presentation mimics a gallery sculptural installation and as such people are encouraged to come and go as they please and drop-in at their convenience.
The track "Melt I+II (fusion)" combines the recordings of both performances in to a single piece.
