Events, Performances

Icebergs are born through a cataclysmic collision of two states of the same matter between ice and sea. Inspired by the tumultuous plunge of unstable glacial fragments into the ocean below, the Icelandic term Bylta means “a heavy blow, overturn, roll, or tumble about”. Bylta is a performance fueled by the purpose to reveal and celebrate the unstable endpoints of creativity that fuels both musical and visual art. Visual artist Alli Hoag and performance artist and pianist Tinna Thorsteinsdóttir collaborate in a performance in the glassblowing studio to ask the question “How can a musical performance create a physical residue?” “In what ways can we make glass and music collide?”
