Artists Studio: Camille Norment & Craig Taborn

Ms. Norment’s instruments “can trespass the border between what is considered beautiful and what is considered noise.”
The Wall Street Journal

“[Craig Taborn is] an inspired bandleader-composer, one of the smartest and slipperiest in his peer group.”
The New York Times

Multimedia artist Camille Norment uses the notion of cultural psychoacoustics, defined by the artist as the investigation of sociocultural phenomena through sound and music—specifically instances of sonic and social dissonance, to create works that span the thresholds of the social and the political. She is joined by improvising pianist, composer, and electronic musician Craig Taborn, a longtime collaborator known to Armory audiences from their 2016 Artists Studio appearance, for a new project that blends the pair’s unique styles and instruments, from the piano, bells, and chimes to found instruments, electronics, and the rare glass armonica. Playing with overtones and intentional feedback, the resulting collaboration perfectly marries the varying aesthetics of the Veterans Room by also extending to the audience, who are invited to create their own sonic elements that feed into the larger, immersive sound world.


The 2022 Artists Studio series is supported in part by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
