Leslie Ross, tide wave. A quadraphonic installation in which each change from mud flats to high tide and back is transformed into corresponding and overlapping soundwaves.


Ranjit Bhatnagar, still spaces. An installation about contemplation and stillness, in which the soundscape is controlled by the movement of incense smoke, and any breath or movement will disturb the smoke and disrupt the sound.

Gustavo and Gaelyn Aguilar, Absence of Answers. Loosely based on Philip K. Dicks's novel Ubik and the Krsk nuclear submarine tragedy, Absence of Answers is a mini-opera for two performers and multi-media.


On September 9 two additional installations join the exhibit. There will be a SECOND OPENING at 6pm, with a concert at 7:30pm. More information and announcements to follow.

Support is provided by SPACE Gallery through The Kindling Fund.
