WANTED: 17 artist/musicians interested in the idea of improvising, up for making noise, and learning a new system of graphic notation. No musical experience necessary.

The Cleveland Museum of Art celebrates the Cleveland Institute of Art exhibition CIA Students: Cleveland, 2009, at CMA with a very special after-hours event on Friday, November 13, featuring Marina Rosenfeld’s Sheer Frost Orchestra.

Sheer Frost Orchestra is a musical performance realized by 17 women* on floor-bound electric guitars, deploying nail polish bottles as sensitive and magical sound-producing implements.

Marina Rosenfeld is a composer and artist based in New York City. Her work has deployed both musical and visual media, including a noted series of performance works, multichannel sound installation, video, photography, and hybrid forms drawing on these. Rosenfeld’s other large scale works have been presented at Deitch Projects (New York), Tate Modern (London), Wien Modern (Vienna), Taktlos (Bern), and elsewhere. She is a featured artist at PERFORMA 09, the third biennial of new visual art performance in NYC this November.

For the November 13 performance, participants are required to:

+ bring an electric guitar, guitar cable, and amplifier

+ bring 5 to 10 bottles of nail polish

+ be at The Cleveland Museum of Art from 11:00 a.m. until
11:00 p.m. (including afternoon rehearsals and night performance)

*(This configuration of Marina Rosenfeld’s Sheer Frost Orchestra may include up to four men, to be determined by the composer.)
