The Selina Trepp exhibition ends with an audio-visual performance by Spectralina, Trepp’s long-term experimental music project with her partner Dan Bitney of the band Tortoise. Spectralina produces electronic soundscapes, in which Trepp sings and uses her midi controlled video synthesizer to create projected animations in real-time as visual music.
"Selina Trepp: I Work With What I Have" is an immersive, three-channel animated experimental score for improvised music. As an artist, animator, and experimental musician, Trepp often utilizes music to inform her animations, but in this participatory installation the artist flips the process, asking musicians to translate the movements and gestures in her silent animation into music.
