Trimpin: Coincidence, Music, Memory, and Meaning

Trimpin and Paul DeMarinis with Mark Gonnerman

Thursday, May 5, 2011 | 7:30pm | Pigott Theater | Free and Open to All

An artist, inventor, engineer, and composer, Trimpin (who uses only his last name) has never been represented by a gallery, a dealer, or a manager. He has neither a cell phone nor a website. Yet his freewheeling sculptures and experiments with sound are cherished by artists, musicians, and museumgoers all over the world.

As a young person in southwestern Germany in the 1950s, Trimpin was haunted by the fact that in the Nazi era, the Jews from his town had all been deported to the internment camp at Gurs, near the Spanish-French border. The Gurs Zyklus, Trimpin's new multimedia stage performance about this, will be presented by Stanford Lively Arts on Saturday, May 14 at 8:00pm.

Join Trimpin and Stanford art professor, Paul DeMarinis, for a conversation that explores art, sound, history, and possible human futures.

Go here details and tickets for the performance of Trimpin's The Gur Zyklus on Saturday, May 14 at 8:00pm.

Has the internet expanded democracy, or has it accelerated the privatization of ideas? How does it affect institutions that mediate public life such as newspapers, libraries, and universities? How do we ensure that a wired world has the healthy public discourse it requires?
