Reliquary of Labor is an innovative project being produced by Gene Gort, associate professor of media arts at the Hartford Art School; Ken Steen, associate professor of composition and theory at The Hartt School; and Hartt alumnus Jeffrey Kreiger ‘85, an electronic cellist and principal cellist of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. The three artists are working in collaboration with the Quey Percussion Duo – Tim Brocious and Gene Koshinski – who are current graduate students at Hartt.
Reliquary of Labor is a “parallel media” performance work – a single project experienced through various distribution systems and performance venues. It was commissioned by the Roberts Foundation and the American Composers Forum Continental Harmony Encore Project to celebrate the opening of the New Britain Museum of American Art’s new facilities.
The project takes as its inspiration the creative process as a product of labor. Using the New Britain Museum’s building expansion as their source material, the artists harvested video and sounds of the construction to develop a multi-media performance for video, electronic cello, percussion duo and pre-recorded sound.
Reliquary of Labor will have its official premiere on Sunday, Nov. 26, at 2:30 p.m., in the new Chase Family Building of the New Britain Museum.
