Experiment in F# Minor

'Experiment in F# Minor', is installed in the rear gallery of Luhring Augustine New York until June 11. On a large table sits a collection of bare speakers of all shapes and sizes. Light sensors are inlaid into the edge of the table and as the viewers move around the room, their shadows cause the various sound and instrumental tracks to fade up and overlap, mingle and fade down. Numerous viewers in the room create a cacophony of musical compositions that vary according to where the audience walks or how many people are in the room. When the space is empty, the table fades to silence.

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.

Meteorite Earth Speaker

Can a lump of iron ore become an electric coil, and transmit sound through a stone? The installation 'Skala' was made for the Palm Room in the Plant House of Bergen´s Botanical Gardens. On the path between the palms, a copper-wound iron meteorite laid in a display case of wood, glass and metal. Sound signals were transmitted into the copper wire and then set off vibrations in the stone. The slight vibrations resonated in the metal plate on which it stood, and the sound became acoustically audible. The meteorite sent low-key sounds out into the space.

Sound art in the streets

Street sound interventions to stumble across. Sounds who are left behind in public space. Transient in nature, lasting only until the battery ran out, or until someone vandalised or stole them. The MiMA in Brussels recently opened, a new museum dedicated to street art, whilst last year a new museum dedicated to electronic music was announced for Frankfurt. The emergence and formalisation of these once-marginal genres of art lead us to look at their fusion and their history. #MrUnderwood #StreetArt #SoundArt #ContemporaryArt #TechArt #ExperimentalArt #InstallationArt #MiMA
