SIX SITES FOR SOUND involves several possible explorations of sound in space and in art through three different forms or supports: in a visual arts context, in a music context and through writing. The first aspect of the project takes place simultaneously in three galleries in the East End, and present new works by British artist Jem Finer and New York based sound artists Keiko Uenishi aka o.blaat and Michael J. Schumacher.
The second aspect of the project is a night of sound and music performances on Friday 01 July at Tate Britain, as part of the Late at Tate series. Featuring Dawn Scarfe and Jem Finer, Brandon LaBelle, Mathias Gmachl, o.blaat and Michael J Schumacher, expect a range of performances in a variety of Tate Britain galleries.
The last facet takes a written format in a special Sound Art issue of Resonance Magazine, which observes practices located between sound, music and art through the investigation of various applications of sound by artists, from Christian Marclay’s turntable experiments or Friedrich Jürgenson’s concept of Electronic Voice Phenomenon, to Bill Fontana’s controversial public sound projects. The magazine is accompanied by a CD featuring the work of six internationally renowned sound artists: farmersmanual, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Douglas Henderson, Brandon LaBelle, o.blaat and Michael J Schumacher. Contributing writers include artists and critics: Alfredo Genovesi, Mathias Gmachl, Elisabeth Penker, Thibaut de Ruyter and Mark Schreiber.
