A new sound installation, A room listening to itself, will be presented at the Center for Contemporary Arts – Santa Fe, NM between June 12-September 13, 2015. The installation will open on June 12 as part of the Currents New Media Festival.
I will be there for the opening June 12, and will give an artist talk on June 13.
Here’s a short description from the exhibition curator:
Are relationships audible? Can sound create a sense of space? Adam Basanta’s site-specific installation A Room Listening to Itself explores amplified acoustic inactivity, creating a unique spatio-acoustic environment environment by subverting conventional sound reinforcement equipment. Microphones and speaker cones are situated in the space to respond to each other, creating feedback and other aural phenomena that are tuned and modified by a specialized computer software. As viewers move through the exhibition, they interrupt and change the spatial relationships, causing a variance in sound.
