Molten Glass Drips Like Honey sublimates the conventionally categorized relationship between
hand and vibrator into a different type of encounter.
Scored by contact mics originally attached to the vibrator and run through a Max/MSP
ring modulation, the hand of the performer engages with the rubber in a dance of courtship,
temptation, evasion, confrontation, eventually translating into a specific kind of synchronicity.
Persistently suggesting the tangential potential of a true meeting, visual and sonic language
blend to offer an encounter that departs from the sexual sphere.
Sound component composed and performed by Abigail Whitman, M A Harms,
Jack Herscowitz. Originally conceived for the live sound performance of the same name
by Abigail Whitman, M A Harms, Jack Herscowitz.
