Roulette presents a carnival of all things experimental, the Roulette MUSICIRCUS returns for a second annual celebration of chaos and the harmonies of simultaneity. MUSICIRCUS will unfold over the course of six hours with the audience invited to wander freely and choose their own sonic and visual relationships. First performed in 1967, John Cage’s MUSICIRCUS is simply an invitation for perfomers to assemble and play together.

The desert, according to the British architecture and design theorist Reyner Bahham from the late 60’s, “…is a projection surface positioning the body as a spatialization frame”, referring to the Mojave desert in CA as a true frontier. The desert has been portrayed in hundreds of Western films including films by directors John Ford and John Huston, and in such films including Michelangelo Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point.

BODYPOINT references the desert and cinema utilizing colored panels and sound that frames the “whole-body” as a critical reconsidering of the experience of sheer space. It incorporates three elements, a soundtrack, poster, and a tinted window. The looped sound component is a textural soundscape used as a soundtrack and played continuously through a freestanding PA speaker mounted on a tripod.

 

Bodypoint Soundtrack Excerpt

“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.
