Feb 21st 2018


@ Hyde Park Art Center

5020 S Cornell Ave, Chicago, IL 60615

Opening Wednesday, February 21st, from 6PM - 6:45PM

Join sound artists Peter Maunu, Ryan Packard and visual artist Nelly Agassi as they collaborate to perform a nontraditional concert. Using the walls, amplification, and a long wire bisecting the gallery, the artists transform architectural space designed by architect, Doug Garofalo into a musical instrument.

(Composition for one wire, two walls and a room)

A room is divided in half and connected lengthwise

at shoulder height, by a long, thin wire. Hollow wooden walls at either end resonate like shells of a drum or a body of a violin, transforming architectural space into a sound generating instrument. Tension of structure and silence is broken by amplification of manipulations of the dividing line.
