A huge mixtape of history

 'KALEIDOSCOPE: A moment Of Grace' is Modern Art Oxford’s series of evolving exhibitions to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Part if this exhibition is a sound installation, containing approximately 4000 cassette tapes from family, friends, record stores and the Internet. Ranging from commercially sold audiobooks, popular music, independent labels, mixtapes, and home recordings, they have been cut and spliced together to create 52 reels, holding approximately 40 hours of sound and music each. These reels exist as mixes, combinations of various sounds by a number of authors that play constantly during the museum’s opening hours, corresponding to a cycle of human consistency. The work hinges on the presence of a listener yet the exhibition itself represents only a partial span of its length with the same sound never played twice.

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.

'Atmosphere for Enjoyment' Exhibition: Harry Bertoia’s Environment for Sound

From May 3 to September 25, 2016, the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC presents two exhibitions focused on Harry Bertoia (1915–1978). Referred to collectively as 'Sonambient, these sculptures are interactive, kinetic, and audible forms consisting of bundles of metal rods that collide and set off radiant tones when agitated by wind or human touch. In his Pennsylvania barn, he recorded approximately 400 tapes, eventually producing eleven LPs with titles such as 'Phosphorescence' and 'Ocean Mysteries'.
