Live Stage: Sonic Self [us NYC]

sonicself.jpgSONIC SELF – An exhibition exploring sound related art :: July 17 – August 30, 2008 :: Opening Reception: July 17, 2008, 7-11 pm :: Associated Events; Live Music + Performances: July 17, 18, 19 and August 14 + 28, 2008 :: Chelsea Art Museum, 556 West 22nd Street, New York, NY.

From July 17th until August 30th, 2008, the Sonic Self is bringing together local and international sound artists, musicians, video / multimedia and performance artists to facilitate the exchange and development of pioneering ideas, innovative skills and practices in contemporary Sound Art discipline. The Sonic Self – a sound-art related exhibition aims at developing an open and direct audio-visual dialog between video and sound artists in order to expose significant similarities and differences in the growing confluence of audio and visual experiences in the emerging Sonic Culture, where; communication, sound and visual experience merge as significant pattern in the cultural sensibility towards sound and the surrounding persistent, random ‘audio architecture’ – a kind of sonic explosion that can be seen as a breakthrough of the Sonic Itself.

The Sonic world (an audible space); an emerging intersection between the audio and visual experiences, based on increasing internet and digital technology inventions — gave the sound a significant stage in the surrounding environment in the multimedia environment of contemporary culture then ever before. The exploration of the sound emergent spaces, time of audio resonance, sound design, audio-visual simulation, virtual dimension, linguistic utterances, musical performance or random ‘noise’, becomes an individual expression which could exceed its form in relation to our internal self and sonic influences. As Damian Catera says: “Sound is no longer trapped within the mechanism of the ear; its multidisciplinary aspects are reflected in a blurring of sensory experiences. Sound is tactile, visual, spatial and spiritual. These elements have long been ingrained in the experience of sound since the dawn of humanity.”

Jimmy Hendrix’s famous quotation “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace” can certainly also be applied to the Sonic Self as an underlying and unifying inspiration which brought together many of the participating sound artists from around the world with the main goal that their collaborative projects bridge disparate audio-visual practices and expose their shared languages — human sonic resonance

The Sonic Self – An exhibition exploring sound related art, curated by Jolanta Gora-Wita, Koshek Swaminathan, Anna Frants, Koan Jeff Baysa, Yaro, with guest curator Maciej Zygmunt Czarkowski, will present works by selected pioneering artists, who use sound as their medium, encompassing a spoken word, field recordings, computer generated sound, video projection, interactive art, sound performance, avant-garde theater, live music and DJ sampling. The Sonic Self artists will collectively examine forms in which we communicate with each other and with the world around us by way of articulate sounds, music, dialog, visuals and motion – transforming the perception and transporting the mind through an internal sound experience.

The curators of the Sonic Self will next bring this unique international sound project to Chennai, India, in winter of 2009, and to St. Petersburg, Russia in spring of 2009. The Sonic Self project, initiated in the spring of 2003 by Jolanta Gora-Wita, will be presented for the second time this summer at the Chelsea Art Museum, NYC.
