Janet Cardiff Alert


If you've been reading what I write for a while, you realize that I'm not all ga-ga over the work of Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller. (If you haven't try here first, then here). Megan Heuer writes in NYFA Interactive a nice fluff piece about the most recent work of Ms. Cardiff. My favorite line?
An abstract soundscape created by motorized drumsticks, bass drum pedals, and other beaters installed to strike the empty bed frames, light fixtures, and toilet bowls of the crumbling chambers of cellblock seven, Pandemonium begins with slow, hollow metallic clanking. Short taps bounce from one end of the long corridor to the other, zigzagging from the floor to the light-filled, vaulted ceiling, building an ecstatic frenzy of rhythm and noise.
Electro-Acoustic art, anyone?
