CentralSound presents Flinching Eye Collective

Friday, November 7, 2014, 8:00 p.m.
Venue: CentralTrak
Admission: Free
Season: 2014-15

CentralTrak’s music series CentralSound presents Flinching Eye Collective (F.E.C.). This collective will perform a one night only, high energy, live session exploring the voluminous nature of sound, video, and performance. This immersive show combines solo and collaborative works created by F.E.C. artists, resulting in a series of quick, energetic performances woven together through fluid transitions. Works focus on disruptions and the reconstruction of sound through the building and collapsing of audible landscapes that are brought to life through performance. This show is customized for the CentralTrak space and audience, allowing the viewer to move in and out of the performance, ultimately becoming part of the show.



Flinching Eye Collective is a group of 7 interdisciplinary media artists, Max Bernstein, Scott Ferguson, Tobias Fike, Adan De La Garza, Ryan Wade Ruehlen, Benjamin Gale-Schreck, and Matthew Weedman.  These artists explore sound-based, interactive performances and video. As a group their goal is to provide a unique transient art experience that engages the community, as well as challenges contemporary notions for exhibition. The F.E.C. formed in 2011, and members reside in NY, CO, WA and TX. Works focus on disruptions and re-fabrications in sound, brought to life through audio, video and performance action as forms of research and exploration. Works intentionally incorporate and engage with the audience so the viewer moves in and out of the performance becoming part of the show itself. The F.E.C. have exhibited and performed at Vox Populi in Philadelphia, PA, AS220 in Providence, RI, Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art in Tucson, AZ, Silent Barn in Brooklyn, NY, Nox Contemporary in Salt Lake City, UT, High Mayhem Art Space in Santa Fe, NM, Squeaky Wheel Media in Buffalo, NY, Currents New Media Festival in Santa Fe NM and the Museum of Natural History at the University of Colorado, Boulder, CO.



CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts.  As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts.  While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.


CentralTrak is supported in part by the generosity of numerous donors and partners from the North Texas area and The University of Texas at Dallas.
