A Project by Kyle Thompson

Friday, February 17th, 6pm – 9pm

Free Admission

H/D +Projects is proud to present SONIC REDUCER / SCALAR COUPLING. Kyle Thompson will present documentation of a two-day performance that took place in the center of a dry lake in early January. A durational work that ranges from creation to entropic resolution, it stems from an unlikely relationship between quantum chemistry and punk rock. Thompson uses tenets of quantum chemistry to drive a refreshingly utilitarian and process-based methodology. SONIC REDUCER / SCALAR COUPLING references The Dead Boys’ first track off of their 1977 album Young, Loud, and Snotty, which has become a prolific cornerstone of punk culture. As Thompson juxtaposes creation and destruction, he also straddles the ideological conflict between the ideals of his youth and the progression of his theories.
