SALISBURY, MD---Millions can picture iconic images of rock ’n’ roll drummers like Keith Moon, Sheila E. and Stewart Copeland behind their sets, playing to sold out stadium crowds. But what does drumming look like … from the inside?
Visiting artists Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere attempt to answer that question during the exhibit “Electro Kinetic Grammar.” The installation is on display August 26-October 19 at Salisbury University’s Electronic Gallery, Teacher Education and Technology Center Room 128. An artists’ talk is 5 p.m. Thursday, October 17, in Fulton Hall Room 111.
Images and video from the exhibit blend medical science and music with art. Nevarez and Tevere work with students from SU’s Health and Sport Sciences Department who will take electrocardiogram (EKG), electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG) readings from Nevarez as he performs on a drum set. The visual results are a testimony to the relationship between the drummer’s mind and body, and the impact of drumming styles and repetition on both.
Electronic Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, and other times by appointment. Sponsored by SU Art Galleries, admission is free and the public is invited.
