Sediments, Sentiments (Figures of Speech)

sfai.jpgSediments, Sentiments (Figures of Speech) by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla :: until December 15, 2007 :: San Francisco Art Institute, 800 Chestnut Street, San Francisco, CA.

The third and final movement in a trilogy of site-specific sound-focused installations, Sediments, Sentiments (Figures of Speech) carries forward lines of investigation Allora & Calzadilla opened first in Clamor (at the Moore Space in Miami in 2006) and then in Wake Up (at the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago in the spring of 2007). The trilogy of exhibitions comprises a series of works that counterpose militarism and war with adroit manipulations of sound, music, and—in this new project for the first time—spoken word.

Live Stage: John Roach & James Rouvelle [us on air]

trailhead.jpgJohn Roach and James Rouvelle will be broadcasting audio and video from their residency at the Free 103.9 Wave Farm at the northern foothills of the Catskills Mountain Park. Live, October 11, 2007; 8:00-9:00 pm EST.

In Trailhead we will map the Wave Farm grounds with sound and images. As we wander through the woods, we will listen and respond with our equipment. We will record our activities and document our location. We will invite collaborators to help in our mission, to shape the project, and fill out the map. The final transmitted product will have no fixed form. Instead, the listeners of free103.9 will be invited to select locations on a map available online, and by doing so, see images and video, and trigger changes in the final on-air mix.

[murmur] update

ear.jpg[murmur] is a documentary oral history project that records stories and memories told about specific geographic locations. It collects and make accessible people’s personal histories and anecdotes about the places in their neighborhoods that are important to them. In each of these locations a [murmur] sign is installed with a telephone number on it that anyone can call with a mobile phone to listen to that story while standing in that exact spot, and engaging in the physical experience of being right where the story takes place. Some stories suggest that the listener walk around, following a certain path through a place, while others allow a person to wander with both their feet and their gaze. Continue reading

Teri Rueb: Core Sample

rueb_walker2.jpgCore Sample by Teri Rueb :: Art on the Harbor Islands (Boston) :: June 23 – October 8, 2007 :: Spectacle Island & ICA Founders Gallery.

Spectacle Island was recently transformed into a publicly accessible landfill park after serving the city of Boston as a dump for nearly a century. Core Sample is a GPS-based interactive sound walk that evokes the material and cultural histories contained in and suggested by the landscape of this very unique island environment. Visitors take the 15 minute journey to Spectacle Island via the Harbor Islands Express Ferry from Long Wharf and borrow headsets free of charge at the Spectacle Island Visitor Center. Sounds play back automatically in response to each visitor’s unique itinerary. Thematic sound content shifts with the changing elevation contours of the path system suggesting the vertical layers of a metaphoric core sample. Abstract sounds and spoken word blur surface and core, natural and artificial, industrial and organic, past, present and future. Continue reading
