Going on Being Buttercream Frosting, by Deidre Huckabay

Going on Being Buttercream Frosting is a ritual of collective remembering that borrows from psychoanalysis, self-help, and sonic baths. It is a sound installation and guided meditation incorporating video, multi-channel audio, lamplight, and mixed childhood debris. Originally a solo musical set titled Capital, Going on Being first developed during a residency at High Concept Labs in spring 2016.

Deidre Huckabay is a Chicago-based performer, writer, photographer, and event producer. She is a flutist with degrees from the Eastman School of Music and Duquesne University. Her work reflects a solitary, interior world, drawing on a musical life that requires long hours alone and listening. As a flutist, she has extensively toured the U.S., Europe, and Latin America. Deidre performs with the Eastman BroadBand and Manual Cinema, and has recorded for Urtext and Bridge Records. She is co-owner of the experimental cassette tape label Parlour Tapes+ and a regular contributor to Cacophony Magazine.
