$3.33: LIVESTREAMS

In the artist statement for LIVESTREAMS, visual artist and musician Celia Rae Hollander, also known as $3.33, writes the following about streaming: “There is no ownership, belonging or rigidity, just a freedom in movement and change itself.” It’s a utopian vision of streaming, one somewhat detached from the politics of the streaming industry-- but Hollander’s interest is not in streaming as a business but as a phenomenology, an experience of the world. The piece, originally a sound installation presented in conjunction with artist Jim Drain’s recent exhibition at the LA gallery Various Small Fires, carries this idea in its waves of cascading, arpeggiated piano phrases. Alternately droning and staccato, the piece bundles together a variegated mass of moods and atmospheres; it re-configures the idea of the stream as an enveloping fold, which issues no demands and upon which no demands are made.

LIVESTREAMS is available to stream via $3.33's Bandcamp page.
