Feedback by Brett Williams
This is a recording of artist Brett Williams’ new site-specific sound installation Feedback.
It’s located in the chapel of a former convent which is now home to The Luminary Center for the Arts. The chapel has forty foot high ceilings and the room has a natural reverb of four seconds. The installation is comprised of four microphones hanging from the ceiling. As an oscillating fan slowly shakes its head no it knocks the microphones back and forth—creating a feedback loop inside the chapel.
Japanese performance artist Kenichi Kanazawa taps a rubber mallet on a steel table to make sound vibrations that create beautiful transforming sand patterns. Using a scientific sound-visualizing process called Cymatics, he is able to manipulate the complex sand shapes by making frequencies visible through these vibrations: the higher the frequency, the more complex the design.

Christine Sun Kim is a deaf performance artist who explores the physicality of sound in her art. Her lo-fi experimentation explore the ownership of sound. The hearing assume ownership of sound in a way that leaves out the consideration of ownership.
This was made by the Selby…whose work continues to get better and better.

The Ekpyrotica series deal with the idea of Ekpyrosis, proposed by the Stoic philosophers. They believed the universe is repeated after every “great year”, and that this repetition is preceeded by the universe’s destruction via a “conflagration”.
The infinite variations and states of the process are reflected in generative laser drawings. The sound creates a constantly changing environment. Space is made perceivable through moving relatively static sound sources across a special loudspeaker setup. Different sound beams scan the room and explore its spatial properties.
