CACOPHONY

cacophony-flyer_front_sExploring Cacophony and simultaneity in art through performance, installation and exhibition. more of the same as below.​
A multi-channel sound and light installation at a public library, sonifying the mute cacophonous space. Inspired by the library scene in Wings of Desire. The installation creates an experience that links fiction and sound.​
The invited artists are at liberty to design sound collages with little reference to any familiar patterns; and regard subjective, cultural or contextual association in sound as a valid element in composition.
It expands its use beyond the casual sequenced and sampled to create a meta-composition that encourages Gestalt listening – expanding the listeners’ attention to include the omniphonic and synchronous attributes of sound perception.

Ron Briefel – multi- screen random video compilation of occurrences. Ron has been documenting his outings for years and in the most haphazard fashion, this is the first installation of a pixel-fraction of his lifelong work.
Chris Collier– The Susurrations of Seashells​
Reflexive sound work involving several multi-layered hydrophone recordings played as non-synchronised stereo loops inside sea shells. A description of the sound is written by visitors, the description is then left in the typewriter to influence the next listener’s perception of what will in fact be a different audio experience (owing to the almost infinite combinations produced by the non-synchronised stereo loops of differing durations).
Vasco Alves – AM/FM Keyboard.
6 piano keys trigger 6 radios tuned to different stations enabling one to create/play sound pieces based on what is being broadcasted at that very special moment. Every speaker as a tuner underneath which adds the option to seek for different radio stations or simply for random noise, whatever fits best on the on going sound piece.
