ARNO GIL MÜLLER NEUMANN SCHUMACHER @ Eyebeam – Chelsea – NYC
ARNO GIL MÜLLER NEUMANN SCHUMACHER: a modular collaboration for Eyebeam’s Main Space initiated by Eyebeam Resident Daniel Neumann.
Exhibition open to the public May 11 - 12 between 12PM - 6PM.
Opening reception: May 10, 2012 6PM in tandem with reception for Wired Frames.
Within this collaboration, its participants develop and experiment with a hybrid between sound installation and live performance in Eyebeam’s Main Space. Some elements happen in real-time, others are programmed or generated algorithmically. The participants engage in a process of systemic composition, which uses the space as an instrument, encouraging a “topological listening” practice. “Topological listening’” means that there is no focus on sound elements themselves, rather, sounds call attention to the potential for meaning in their relationships to each other, to the space and to the individual listeners engaging with them. A collaborative approach to creating these environments highlights complex interconnections which can hardly be reduced to a single narrative.
