Tonight I'll be performing music at Apex Art in Tribeca in connection with the Rob Walker-curated exhibit "As Real As It Gets." Marc Weidenbaum organized the sound art component of the show, which runs until December 22, including tonight's event.
Repeating my earlier description:
Walker's show deals with branding and commercialism, including fictional precedents and fake products. Inspired by Emile Zola's description of a bustling 19th Century department store, Weidenbaum asked musicans to make and then modify field recordings of actual retail spaces in the present-day world.
My performance will include a music piece based on some of these recordings, as well as one other recent work.
The other performers are Arcka (Shawn Kelly), Brian Biggs, Ethan Hein, Kenneth Kirschner, Joon Oluchi Lee, and Roddy Schrock. The event starts at 6:30 pm at Apex Art, 291 Church Street, New York, NY. I hope to see you there.
