Frequency Hopping at 3LD Art & Technology Center
The Hourglass Group presents Frequency Hopping, written and directed by Elyse Singer, opening at 3LD Art & Technology Center fon 5 Jun 2008, following previews from 29 May and running through to 29 Jun 2008.
Frequency Hopping: Re-imagines the relationship between film icon Hedy Lamarr (best known for her nude swimming scene in Ecstasy and star turn in Cecil B. DeMille's Samson and Delilah) and George Antheil ('bad boy' composer of the revolutionary 1924 composition Ballet mecanique). In 1940, the duo collaborated on a patent for an anti-jamming device to control torpedo guidance. Although largely ignored at the time, their invention is now recognized as the model for 'frequency-hopping spread spectrum,' widely used in cellular phone technology.
The creative team comprises Elaine J. McCarthy (sets), Angela M. Kahler (costume)and Tyler Micoleau (lighting).
