MSHR is a collaborative project by Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy based in Portland, Oregon. The duo produces installations, sculptures and ritualistic performances that place the human body into a dynamic relationship with sound and light, generating expanded sensory experiences. Their current performance series, titled Resonant Hyper Scape Modulator, revolves around a unique system of light-audio feedback that employs hand made synthesizers and sculptural interfaces. The two performers insert themselves into the system, shifting sculptural sensors to steer the feedback patterns as they explore the hyperscapes of a transhumanist ceremony.

MSHR emerged from the art collective Oregon Painting Society and has since exhibited and performed across the US, Canada and Europe, including Transmediale (DE); Kunstverein Dusseldorf (DE); Yerba Buena Center (US); Three Walls (US); Cell Projects (UK); Le Dictateur (IT); Appendix (US); Western Front (BC-CA).
