The second live performance installment of the Aldrich Box, a year-long traveling exhibition, is Transonic Homes, a solo musical performance by musician, composer, and collaborator Laura Ortman (White Mountain Apache).

Ortman describes the performance, “from the rosined-out beast of tough stained violin emerges deranged crumpled wings twirling in starlight and oil slickness and shininess; bearing heavy use of amplification and effects, she also incorporates over-rosining to add smoke, dust, wind and slow-motion grittiness in her scored / improvised compositions for amplified violin, Apache violin, whistles, tree branches, slides, guitar picks, bells, field recordings, and tuning fork.”
