About the exhibition:

This edition of radioCona:0.2425 aims at reflecting and shifting precisely this ‘unperceived’ remainder, making a leap to move from the unit of time to the notion of space, toward perceiving space, toward perceiving, capturing, and composing sounds and soundscapes, and ultimately toward creating autonomous narratives.

The radioCona:0.2425 soundart exhibition was curated by Francisco Lopez, Elena Biserna, Brane Zorman, Irena Pivka, and Jasmina Založnik. Find details about my curatorial selections here.

I curated a selection of works by five artists for the radioCona 0.2425 FM soundart exhibition broadcast and streaming February 28 – March 3, 2016 after nautical twilight 6:16 PM on 88.8MHz FM and live streaming on www.radiocona.si Ljubljana.

This edition of the annual exhibition is dedicated to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, focusing on the dimension of nighttime radio transmission and the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from daytime rhythms.

In addition, my own “SoundTent At Camp Sherwin” was selected by one of the other curators.

cd_big90My work, titled “Feedback.mono” is on Explorations in Sound, Volume 4, The Sound of Live Performance, a net label release curated by Furthernoise editor Roger Mills. The release is a 23 track compilation of noisemakers responding to the theme of the incidental and unexpected audio consequences of live performance, and is free to download with printed sleeve from the February/March 2011 issue of Furthernoise.org.

This compilation on The Sound of Live Performance assembles those “sound failures, the misassigned patch, unintended playing outcomes, FX overloads, calibrations and pinnacles of performative exploration” that offer sources for eclectic new material.

Shapes of Sound exhibition online

Eric Leonardson performs on the Springboard

Eric Leonardson performs on the Springboard, an amplified walker with a wide variety of springs and percussion devices attached. Woodland Pattern Book Center, Milwaukee, WI (1997).

Hal Rammel inspired me to make my own instruments in 1990. Tonight, I learned from him that a web page about the wonderful exhibition of experimental musical instruments and their inventors, The Shapes of Sound: Musical Instruments and the Imagination in the Midwest, curated by Hal is now online.

I was honored to be among the 14 artist-inventors having their instruments on display. My Springboard was shown, and I gave a brief solo performance in the show. The show was held in October through December 1997 at an important, non-profit center for culture and learning in the Midwest, Woodland Pattern Book Center located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 1979.

As noted on my Experimental Instruments page, the Springboard was built in 1994 thanks to Hal’s example as a sensitive and thoughtful maker, performer, and teacher.

Many photographs of the artist-inventors, and the exhibition itself, are shown along with Hal Rammel’s enlightening catalog essay. To learn more about his fascinating writing, visual art and music for yourself, please visit Hal’s homepage.
