Alex Halsted and David Moré: Gnathonemus Petersii

@ Gallery 400

400 S Peoria St, Chicago, IL 60607

Opening Wednesday, October 14th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Friday, November 13th

Gnathonemus Petersii is a unique collaboration between musician Alex Halsted and sound artist David Moré. Halsted emits a constant pulse that forms an electrical field that surrounds her body, disturbances to this field she interprets as obstacle, food, or mate. During performance, Moré works with this signal, processing it audibly and transforming the signal with various effects. On view during the exhibition will be a sound installation by Halsted and Moré, and handmade tape and vinyl recordings for sale. Halsted and Moré, in collaboration with other musicians and sound artists, will also create a series of new performances in the gallery. In an engaging format, Gnathonemus Petersii mixes together elements of displacement, inter-species communications, and the commercialism of sound.
