Introduction and screening of New Music: Sounds and Voices from the Avant-Garde
Conversation between Stephen Vitiello and Alvin Lucier and screening of re: Soundings
In 2011, ICI invited Stephen Vitiello to guest curate the traveling sound exhibition With Hidden Noise, which includes artists Andrea Parkins, Jennie C Jones, Pauline Oliveros, Steve Peters, Steve Roden, Taylor Deupree, Michael J Schumacher and Stephen Vitiello.
With Hidden Noise debuted the Aspen Art Museum in Colorado and at Monash University in Victoria, Australia, and this spring and summer will be on view at three additional venues: Wave Hill in New York, The University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, and The Henry Art Gallery in Seattle. On this occasion, a crucial moment for sound in art finally entering art institutions, ICI is organizing an event in lower Manhattan to explore the origins of experimental sound and the radical ways artists have worked outside the mainstream.
Organized by Stephen Vitiello and Alaina Claire Feldman, New York’s Hidden Noise is a one night event at Anthology Film Archives investigating the history of experimental sound in the 1970s in New York. It will include a screening of Michael Blackwood’s New Music: Sounds and Voices from the Avant-Garde back-to-back with John Sanborn and Kit Fitzgerald’s re: Soundings, which follow artists such as Vito Acconci, Laurie Anderson, David Behrman, Earle Brown, John Cage, Philip Glass, Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, Meredith Monk, Max Neuhaus, Ben Patterson, Liz Phillips and more. The evening will conclude with a conversation between Vitiello and special guest Alvin Lucier.
