"The Sound of Things: Unmonumental Audio"
February 13 - March 30 2008
“Unmonumental” expands on February 13, 2008 with the opening of “The Sound of Things: Unmonumental Audio” featuring three programs of short audio collages by thirteen international artists with backgrounds in music, poetry, and visual art. These audio collages will be played in the galleries at three-minute intervals. Bringing together elements of found and created sound with music and spoken word, the diverse selection of audio works juxtaposes and knits together disparate aural elements from inaudible whispers, lyric melodies, piercing noises, and industrial clatter to create a soundscape for the experience of living in an unmonumental world.
