Blank Verse on VauxFlores
Another digital first as we archive the old, welcome the new and cross our fingers and hope everyone will play nice together for the duration. This time we have, for the first time in digital, streaming web-format, the definitive audio mix from Blank Verse, a 5-day interactive art installation a the Fisher Gallery of the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Oberlin, Oh., which took place from November 15-20, 2004.
From the original liner notes, circa August 2005:
“This recording represents over a year’s accumulation of various digitally processed field recordings and other experiments conducted in collaboration with visual artists Iz Öztat and John Hensel, originally premiered as part of a five-day installation at the Fisher Gallery of the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Oberlin, Ohio from November 15-20, 2004.
It is a portrayal of nothing and everything simultaneously and interchangeably. It is a work in progress. Take that as you will. – t.”
