Art is Alive With the Sound of Music
Eli Keszler, L Carrier installation, Eyebeam, New York City, June 2012
In an exhibition that brings together international artists, musicians, and composers, the South London Gallery presents The Moment of Being Heard.
Upon entering the gallery, you will discover how something as simple as listening can create an intimate space, and change the mood of your surroundings. For example, you will be able to compare the range of emotions that you experience when exposed to different sounds. Rolf Julius's Singing installation comprises of seven speakers emitting a low resonance hum, while his 'dot' score is juxtaposed next to a photograph by Reiner Ruthenbeck that shows some closing shutters.
Crys Cole focusses on sonic environments in Filling a Space With Salt, and Eli Keszler uses a piano wires to create a visual and aural experience.
There will be a number of special events throughout the exhibition's run, which is open until the 8th September. All the events are free to attend, and include a dance performance on the 28th July by Junko Wada, a recording of animal sounds from Symphony Natura op.170 on 30th July- 4th August, and a young people's Noise Summit workshop.
