What’s in a sound? And what of a drone? Venerable curator Barbara London is joined in conversation by artist Aura Satz, an interdisciplinary artist based in London, UK with a particular interest in the sustained, ambient, and minimal. Satz and London will discuss the artist’s approach to sound as an intangible, yet integral component of art and daily life, including her telephone sound composition Dial Tone Drone (2014), a piece that questions, articulates, and explores the drone form in all its political, conceptual, meditative, and musical implications. Their conversation will open onto broader artistic concerns, including the sculptural possibilities of combining sculpture and sound, the role of technology in our audible landscape, sound and connectivity, and her ongoing series of works with women composers.
