Revolutions per Minute: A Decade of Chinese Sound Art
March 26–April 29, 2013
Opening celebration: Reception on March 26, performances on March 27 (in the Hall of Presidents) and March 28 (in the Visualization Lab), and a colloquium on March 29
A retrospective of Chinese sound art by 30 artists will be installed throughout campus and in Hamilton. Six artists will present free sound art performances, including improvisation, electro acoustic composition, abstract audio-visual work, and circuit bending. These performances will highlight key events from the past decade of Chinese sound art — a movement that began in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Artists focus on sound as a medium to reflect their views on culture and art as well as express their emotions and document dramatic societal transformations.
The interdisciplinary nature of the exhibition extends from the planning phase involving various faculty members — from physics to theater — to different academic opportunities.
The visiting artists will conduct four do-it-yourself workshops/demonstrations on sound, and students will create their own sound art.
