TRANSMISSION ART ARCHIVE
Ether Underground for Starved Rock State Park
Gambletron & Johnny Forever
Ether Underground for Starved Rock State Park is an improvisational performance of radio and video transmissions created specifically for the site of Starved Rock. Following a weeklong residency on location, the artists will use geographical features and found objects within the park to introduce new connections — between earth and wire, nature and sound — and engender a unique abstract environment. For their performance, the artists will guide a mobile audience through Gambletron’s mobile body transmission and AM Radio Theremin creating a synthesized saw-powered soundtrack accompanied by Johnny Forever’s video.
