Noise is known as the source of dissonance and power. According to the music critic Simon Reynolds, noise occurs when language is broken down and is in a wordless state. He says that the pleasure of noise lies in the obliteration of meaning and identity, which he calls ecstasy. Jacques Attali writes about noise as a subversive disorder that can reveal the codes of life and relations among individuals. 

SENTINEL is a two night performance series in conjunction with Roundabout/UEBA. Schafer selected the sound artists, musicians, composers and turntablist; DSE, Neg-Fi, Richard Garet, and Maria Chavez with Daniel Neumann.

“Roundabout/UEBA”, a solo exhibition at STUDIO10 Gallery, Bushwick, NY, February 3-28 2012.

The exhibition Roundabout/UEBA includes two metal sculptures with accompanying sound, photography, 3d animation video, and drawings. The sculptures perform as an installation in the gallery space that allows the simultaneous sound from both sculptures to sonically blend together.

“Roundabout” incorporates the translation of data and space into abstract sound. It is comprised of a steel sculpture with an iPod mounted to it. The iPod presents a 3D animation of the same sculpture rotating from two different views at two speeds with accompanying sound. The sound from the animation is generated from uploading the elevation graphics of the sculpture to a software program that converts visual data to sound.

“UEBA” presents the idea of promise with the possibility of failure. A PA speaker mounted to the small aluminum sculpture plays an 11-disc audio book “Magnificent Desolation” by Buzz Aldrin. The disks may be played in any order or repeated as desired.  Accompanying the sculpture and audio are three portraits of Aldrin.
