Bain Project Performance

Bainpaint_1_1_1

The Bain Project installation weekends are over, but the reverberations of this grand, all-enveloping art event will echo for a very long time.  Not since David Ira Wood’s multimedia theatre event “X” (in Thompson Theatre in 1970 when “multimedia” had just been coined) has Raleigh been blessed with such a massive infusion of cool. And to think – Bread & Puppet comes next weekend!! Raleigh, Raleigh.

I’m still reeling from the sights, sounds and interactions of Bain.  Huge crowds included many like me who visited several times.  You couldn’t possibly see everything in one pass, and I kept running into wonderful reunions as well as Bain participants, who were amazingly present and available throughout the building.  One thing I didn’t catch til near the end were the sound performances in the main hall of tanks.  Below are links to two 30 second clips of the performance.

Though one of the best parts of the Bain installation was the seamless and credit-less array of work, Dana Raymond should be credited with leadership in the sound project above.  I will be posting more special features of the Bain Project as I gather my thoughts for a central review. Stay tuned for Marty’s yellow room, four-day views of the ball floor and the watershed map, Tim’s magic lab, my urban explorer interview about Bain, and much more!  It will all be referenced on my Bain Page.
