For Belgian friends and those close by, I'll be making the sound installation for Maria Hassabi's newest dance piece, SHOW. We premiered the piece at the Kitchen last Fall and we will be creating new iterations of the piece in Antwerp and in NY for the River to River Festival. The sound installation will be a new work designed for the gardens at the museum.

F.R. David launch with Will Holder and Chris Mann & D.S. al Coda release

Artists Space NY
Sun, 03/11/2012 - 4:00pm

F.R.DAVID is published by de Appel, Amsterdam, and is concerned with the position of reading and writing in the arts.
"This is not new, of course", the ninth issue of F.R.DAVID, finds 'poetry' – the word and the product – NOT sacred, IS mutable, and SHOULD be replaced with "politics", "art", "baking", "film" and "cabinet-making" as one possible means to record life.
Edited by Will Holder, with contributions by Stan Brakhage, Adam Chodzko, Cid Corman, Maya Deren, Robert Duncan, Anja Kirschner / David Panos, Hilary Koob Sassen, Jackson Mac Low, Chris Mann, Charles Olson, Marjorie Perloff, C.H. Sisson, H.G. Widdowson and more

Bicameral Research Sound & Projection System

The Clocktower Gallery NYC
Wed, 01/11/2012 - 6:00pm

I'll be playing on Wednesday night from 6-8pm at the Clocktower as part of David Linton's ongoing installation. If you haven't already been and experienced it, please come! Long beautiful drones and 4 part cello harmonies to be expected.

With his Bicameral Research Sound & Projection System Linton aims to make vibrational wave induced perceptual energy states manifest by deploying interconnected measures of electric sound & pulsing light in live action with hand manipulated objects in physical (live camera) space. He employs an integrated recursive audio & video feedback system of his own perversely simple design modulated by freehand intervention to deliver vigorous eye, ear, and - sometimes - body shaking realtime audio

David Linton's Bicameral Research Sound & Projection System sound and video installation entitled Cortical Degausser opens for public viewing on Wed Dec 7, 2011 in Studio 4 at the Clocktower Gallery on the 13th floor of 108 Leonard St in downtown Manhattan.

Viewing hours will be from 1:00 to 7:00 PM Monday through Friday and by special weekend appointment through the month until Dec 30th.
