An artist from Sydney, Mark Bolotin, 32, will present a 12-headed ‘creature’ at the Casita Maria youth center in Longwood on Saturday, designed from videos and sounds of Bronx residents, DNAinfo reports.
30 artists, senior citizens and children contributed to the artist’s new project with the help of Casita Maria. They were filmed and recorded while singing, sharing their thoughts on the Bronx or reciting texts.
The creature, which also includes faces and sounds of Australian people, is named “The Lumiphonic Creature Choir” and was transported from Australia to the United States in May. It is part of a program aimed at bringing artists to spaces like the youth center.
Bolotin and his band will play with these Bronx faces and voices at 3 p.m. Saturday at Casita Maria.
