Windows of Sound is a concept for a night of unusual performances. Artist and composer Tom Stanton has brought 14 artists together to perform outside of their comfort zones in the Arts Benicia gallery for an evening.
Artists, musicians, poets, and writers were asked to create a three-minute live performance in which they do something that they don't normally do within the works they produce. This introduced two major constraints: the three-minute window and the discomfort involved in what would surely be an amateur presentation. Not surprisingly, many people quickly rose to these challenges and stretched their professional comfort zones. The emphasis shifted over time from an 'amateur' work to one that had compression, intensity and passion in its content. The performers represent many fields, ages and backgrounds. The one element they share in common is this three-minute performance.
Performers include: Peter Bray, John Chiara, Alex Cory, Joel Fallon, David Fitzgerald, John Goory, Dave Holt, Tim Kahl, Mike Kendall, Pamela Lung, Joseph Martino, Thalo Morse, Heather Ottaway and Sarah Rohrs.
