ANYA YERMAKOVA, PhD Candidate in History of Science
Anya will present her artist statement and selections from her CMP work:
“Concerto for Charango and Orchestra: from the Big Bang through the Fundamental Laws”: a completed music composition and experimental documentary, in collaboration with a youth orchestra in Chile and an astrophysicist.
“Improv Structures inspired by Dynamic Logics of 19th c Russia: embodied knowing of the non-binary”: a work-in-progress in improv dance, sound art, and documentary video that is a complement to Anya’s dissertation.
“Chronotopes”: an ongoing series of projects in music improvisation, music composition, sound art, and “music video” with ample black screen, developing a Bakhtin-inspired methodology for working through a collection of multi-media data entangled in the “personal archive” and the “professional PhD data collection.”
