This #VR experience explores intimate partner abuse and healing. I will be playing shenai on a live version of my composition SkySwirl, the music that fades in once the healing has begun. Listen to SkySwirl here. We will have headsets, sanitizers, and hope to collect stories at this workshop/ performance event. Tickets are free but please reserve your space here https://tinyurl.com/BoughtBrokenDec8
Bought/Broken VR is a virtual reality experience for those who have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV) and their allies. Create a sound sculpture built in VR. The virtual sculpture of once-broken objects – now beautifully bound together with streaks of gold – is both a personal journey and a collective one. Share your story.
Join artists Theresa Loong and Robbie Lynn Hunsinger from 7-8pm on Thursday December 8, in solidarity with NYC’s “16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence” Campaign and the Mayor’s Office to End Domestic and Gender-Based Violence
Event is free, RSVP recommended. Donations to Day One NY and Womankind suggested.
” I just call her one of Nashville’s most important artists, and our best ambassador for more crossover at the edges of our city’s art and music scenes.” Joe Nolan Nashville Scene full article quote below
NEWS: The SynthX4 event was amazing! I had a packed crowd and the #playdoh #synth is a keeper! We made a circle circuit holding hands during the Playtime set and people jammed and danced to the #kinect visuals. It was a memorable afternoon and party and people are really liking this new synthx4 project. I am looking to do more tours with it. Please reach out if you know of a black box type venue!! I can’t thank Joe enough for this amazing and enthusiast shout out about the event and my work.
ARTICLE: “Local multimedia artist and musician Robbie Hunsinger wowed Nashville’s experimental music heads at Centennial Park’s Black Box Theater back in October. Her double bill with Tim Kaiser blended acoustic and electronic sounds in a program that combined ambient music, oboe expressions, creative coding, audio loops and live visuals. Hunsinger debuts a sequel performance to the Black Box show in the form of a new solo happening at Barbershop Theater this Saturday afternoon. SynthX4 includes contrasting audio synthesizer loops that feed video synthesizers to create live eye candy in response to the musical inputs. All these sounds and visuals free Hunsinger to add oboe, alto saxophone, clarinet and vocals, and the live acoustic improvisations are also layered with the synthesizer loops in real time. Hunsinger is planning an interactive “Playtime” segment of the show, allowing audience members to use Xbox Kinect to control her music-fueled visuals. The artist will also be available for a Q&A after the show to illuminate the secret alchemy of her live audio architecturing.
If Hunsinger didn’t play her instruments so well, I’d simply call her a performance artist. But she’s plainly talented, deeply learned and wildly inventive in both her techniques and concepts. I just call her one of Nashville’s most important artists, and our best ambassador for more crossover at the edges of our city’s art and music scenes. SynthX4 makes contact at Barbershop Theater this Saturday at 3 p.m. There’s a $10 suggested donation. “
