Additional Info: In 2010 Swoon started a project with a group of friends which would later evolve into the Music Box Village, a sonic sculpture garden and experiential playground for collaborative musical architecture nestled into the levee of the Upper 9th Ward in New Orleans. This pair of figures, Aba and Caitlin, originally created as larger than life sized linoleum block prints for the gates of the Music Box village, depict two of the artists and performers who are part of the Music Box community. Aba plays a percussion set which is embedded in the village, while Caitlin pulls on a cable that connects first to a pulley, and finally to a slide trombone. This ten–layer screen print is based on the last block print Swoon created before switching mediums to pursue further creative experimentation in sculpture, film, and stop-motion animation. It is a record of a time and place, as well as a chronicle of a rich history of creative collaboration.
