Building 98 will be collaborating with Ballroom Marfa.
Gregg Kowalsky will be performing his solo performance / installation Tape Chants piece at Building 98 at 2:30 pm, Saturday, March 14, as part of Marfa Myths. Tape Chants explores the acoustics where the performances occur by setting up amps and cassette players around the space, using only the cassette players’ speakers for amplification. Throughout the piece, Gregg moves around the space adjusting the amplitude of the players as a live mix. As part of this performance, Kowalsky will include sound sources recorded in Marfa.

Curated by New York based label Mexican Summer and co-presented with Ballroom Marfa, it features artists from within and outside of the Mexican Summer and Software Recording Co. rosters working creatively and collaboratively across music, cinema and visual arts contexts.
