Los Herederos The Sonicycle: Layers of Community
Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg Gallery
January 24–June 4, 2023
Folklife traditions—including dance performances, traditional music, and multimedia storytelling—will be highlighted in The Mitzi and Warren Eisenberg Gallery, through public programs and video, audio recordings, and documentary photographs. Los Herederos, a media arts non-profit organization, will showcase The Sonicycle, a mobile audio-visual unit that engages communities in sharing stories, music, and cultural traditions. This interactive digital caravan is fully outfitted with a DJ turntable, speakers, audio players, a projector, and recording equipment. Los Herederos will use The Sonicyle to record stories from artists, performers, and community members in a public event at the Art Center on Saturday, February 11, from 12:30–4 PM. They will then produce a short audio documentary reel composed of oral histories, local soundscapes, and musical performances collected by folklorist Naomi Sturm-Wijesinghe and Los Herederos. Also on view will be aspects of the folklife research including an installation of documentary photographs printed on textiles.
