MULTIPLE ONENESS - TIME RELEASED PERFORMANCE
MATT SULLIVAN, OBOE and KEN CRO-KEN, VISUAL ARTIST
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS:
ANDREW WAGGONER, VIOLIN & CAROLINE STINSON, CELLO


Thursday was a musical interlude at Old Branch Inn, (www.weekendofchambermusic.com) with Weekend of Chamber Music (WCM) trio Andrew Waggoner, (violin) Matt Sullivan, (oboe/English horn) Caroline Stinson (cello) plus “visual artist” Ken Cro-Ken. Self-described “ecosystem painter,” Cro-Ken “sets a painting in motion to recreate the push-pull forces that shape all things,” and he did just that, accompanied by the trio’s evening of “Transprovisations.” The place was packed, the audience wildly enthusiastic.  - THE RIVER REPORTER

TIME RELEASED PERFORMANCE


NEW YORK TIMES - MUSIC REVIEW 

By VIVIEN SCHWEITZER

The painter Ken Cro-Ken, rear, and the oboist Matt Sullivan

presented their performance-art piece “Multiple Oneness.”


"The most unusual work I encountered was “Multiple Oneness,”

an intriguing performance-art piece by the oboist Matt Sullivan and

the painter Ken Cro-Ken. While Mr. Sullivan played a melancholy lament over recorded sounds,

Mr. Cro-Ken poured liquids onto a canvas projected onto a video screen. The colorful liquids flowed

through the painting’s raised surfaces like yellow lava, swirling

in strange tandem with the oboe’s melancholy tunes."

Here is the LIVE painting in "mid-launch"
January 6th around 7:15pm

"Cro-Ken, readied with the projected live image of a preset textured and framed tabletop terrain on the wall and paint colors in hand, commenced to pour the colors onto his canvas. The audience watched the paint flow, eddy round the contours, blend together and repeat. In much the same way, the live and recorded oboe sequences looped,
layered and blended together in intriguing ways."
