"Cliff Baldwin's The Language of Light performance is an immersive sensory experience," expressed Parrish Art Museum Curator of Special Projects, Andrea Grover. "The moving images are directly triggered by the music that Cliff composes in real time—creating the sensation of synesthesia or a union of the senses."

On Friday, January 9th at 6 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum is holding the New York debut of "The Language of Light," a live cinema experience by artist Cliff Baldwin, which showcases natural and man-made light in its many appearances. The film includes an original score created by Baldwin from the Aquebogue Orchestrion, a digital musical instrument he created.

Each film clip is composed of graphic and live action video elements filmed on location around the world, and ranges from a carnival in Jamesport, New York, to traffic and night street scenes in Paris and Berlin, to found extraterrestrial views from the International Space Station, to illuminating Times Square sights. Since its world premiere in 2012, Baldwin has added additional exciting scenes like a shot of the fully lit up Eiffel Tower in Paris, and a segment that investigates the glow of light that radiates from cell phones. The film is accompanied by a soundtrack which fuses traditional sounds from the Coney Island carousel and barrel organs with electronic samples collected in New York, Stockholm, Warsaw, and Budapest.

Tickets to "The Language of Light: Cliff Baldwin Film Performance" are $10 for non-members and free for members, children, and students.

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-283-2118 or visit parrishart.org.
