Griffen Theatre, Salem, MA


Mitchel Ahern (Swampscott, MA)

Mitchel Ahern is a print maker, performance artist and sound sculptor. He will be performing on two of his invented instruments: the Swamp Thing Two, and The Harrow. Swamp Thing Two is built on a broken DJ turntable, with rotating micromallets building cyclical rhythmic structures from magnetized toys and objects. This performance introduces The Harrow, a heavy disc off of farm machinery mounted to a cello like body and played with bow and mallets. Mitchel will be performing selections from two upcoming gallery happenings: Plan 9 From Outer Space, and Second Civil War featuring letterpress banners on fabric of Heroes of IICW.
