Ruby Fridays

Drop by the Ruby on Friday at noon for a casual art talk and free lunch to learn about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the creative process, careers in the arts, and more.

Join musician and artist Brooks Frederickson for reflections on music and music-making and a visit to his interactive audio installation Here to Hear // Hear to Here, currently on view in the Ruby (Jan 14-Feb 16, 2020). Here to Hear // Hear to Here invites you to put on headphones and sing specific pitches following helpful cues. The sound of your voice triggers music to play-never the same, and only if you sing on key.

How does our hearing of music change when we are a part of its creation? How does our focus change when our experience is unique and ephemeral? In this talk, Brooks shares the ideas and inspirations behind the installation and prompts us to consider our relationship to music, hearing, and location.
