On The Sensations of Tone

An exploratory exhibition on the propagation of sound in the human body. 'On the sensations of tone' brings together three artists where sound, listening, the ear of the listener and the composer are essential elements in their work. This approach evokes the theories of Hermann Ludwig von Helmholtz (1821-1894) in his seminal work 'The physiological theory of music based on the study of auditory sensations', published in 1865 in Germany. It pays attention to the propagation of sound in the ear and researches the ear as an essential element to compose music.

The Sound Forest

Vicky Browne is an installation artist who utilises everyday objects such as Walkmans, iPods, clothing and furniture to comment on Western systems of consumption and production. Browne often manipulates the familiar using traditional craft methods (such as knitting or weaving), and she regularly employs found or produced sound. The Sound Forest is dense with vibrations and finding your way through the foliage will leave you awed and increasingly aware of the world around you. #VickyBrowne #Firstdraft #SoundArt #SoundSculpture #ContemporaryArt #ExperimentalArt #MusicSculpture

Author of Astonishment: Charlotte Moorman at the Block Museum

An exhibition of Charlotte Moorman and the Avant-Garde in the 1960s–1980s. She was a groundbreaking, rule-bending artist, musician, and advocate for the experimental art of her time. She had an important role in the history of sound art and music related contemporary art. This exhibition replaces the indelible image of Charlotte Moorman (1933-1991)—playing the cello topless save for a pair of strapped-on miniature television sets—with a more complex but equally powerful portrait of the girl from Little Rock, Arkansas, who metamorphosed into a seminal and barrier-breaking figure in music inspired performance art and an impresario of the postwar avant-garde.
