All events are Free
Sound in Space
will traverse diversity by presenting cross sections of the local sound art community. From sound installation to Fluxus note card pieces and field recordings to live ambient music, the topography of the musical fringe is as varied as the community is geographically dispersed.
This is a program for the community by artists in the community. Every performance is free with an aim to urge active collaboration and exchange between artists and audiences.
While the sea and space are the dark unknowns, they don't have to be unknowable. Sound in Space
are vehicles with which the community is invited to navigate and explore art that has been termed "experimental," or "conceptual;" loose terms that create a barrier rather than extend a hand.
The Sea and Space Explorations Gallery hosts performances and installations every weekend (Thursday through Sunday) during the month of February.
- Installations throughout the month by Marc Nimoy, Cooper Baker, Clay Chaplin, Phil Stearns, Thadeus Frazier-Reed, and Daniel Corral.
(nightly with events)
- Commitment in confinement - not for the faint - extreme work in the back of a van.
Works of extreme duration, volume, frequencies, repetition, etc. will explore the reaches of one's determination in an exercise of will.
