“Static Age”

Exhibition: April 14-27

“Static Age” involved the selection and sampling of the Imaginary Landscape compositions numbers 1,2,3,4, and 5 by John Cage from the 1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s. These compositions were digitally captured and placed one after the other in chronological order and layered in sequence on multiple tracks so that they are available for digital playback simultaneously. This formatting created a block of samples both horizontally, unfolding in time, but also stacked vertically. The sampled compositions were played back and electronically processed while indeterminately performed through electronic processing.
