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.

Tin Space. Induction series #4

The series uses a combination of everyday objects, magnets and coils to generate electromagnetic charges. At the same time it explores how sound is created from the generate charge which can resonate in these objects. The floating structure of tin boxes is kept together by strong magnets that create a permanent magnetic field at the same time. Electromagnetic coils move the structure, creating light vibrations that produce sound. The vibrations are amplified acoustically by natural resonances which transform the tin boxes into sound boxes. The work reviews and re-interprets the laws of electromagnetic induction to make sounds.

'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'.

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
