The Silent City: Part I (Installation 2016)
An interactive/intermedia installation
September 8-18, 2016
@ The Museum of Human Achievement
By activating trigger circuits, the public manipulates an array of sounds featuring audio sourced from public places in Austin, accompanied by a coordinated display of synchronized lights.
Artists: Wendy Mitchell, Lindsay Greene, Lauren Gurgiolo, Fat Fuse (Christopher Cox & Grant Johnson), The Dialtones
Ongoing installation open to the public daily, along with four scheduled performances:
Two nights of quasi-improvisational music and lights featuring compositions by Lauren Gurgiolo and design by Wendy Mitchell.
Drawing inspiration from musique concrete and early electronic music, 10 musicians play compositions on the specially-made hand-wired sound machines, accompanied by immersive, shifting light. Visitors can also play the machines, explore the interactive music and lights, and create their own compositions.
