I will be leading a docent tour of selected installations at Soundwalk 2012 (8 PM), and I will participate in a panel discussion on Sound Art (7 PM), moderated by Marc Weidenbaum, Saturday, 1 September 2012, East Village Arts District, downtown Long Beach. The event is free. Here is a description of the panel (with Inouk Demers and Marco Schindelmann):
“Performed Art: The Fluid Roles of Spectator and Artist in Sound Art.” We’ll be discussing the concept of “performance” and how it relates to sound art. To take just two examples among many: What makes a concert a work of sound art, and what are the roles of the “audience” and “performer” in installation art? We’ll draw examples from the works at SoundWalk, notably those produced this year by the panelists, among other pieces. The goal is to illuminate telling parallels and resonant dissonances between the various participants’ conception of matters of performance in sound art.”
A special mix of my solo project, Pinna, will be included in an exhibition, Disruptive Stillness, at the Jean Paul Slusser Gallery, The University of Michigan School of Art and Design, 8-28 January 2011.
