AUDIBLE GALLERY: Bielak / Schmalz: 'Fourth Horizon'

Fourth Horizon is a meditation on living in a city with water as a constant eastern horizon. Inspired by a theater stage constructed over water and an early commercial radio broadcast of a telepathy experiment, the exhibition explores the relation between the built and natural environments—and the spaces for imagination, connection, and alienation in daily urban life. Fourth Horizon incorporates sculpture, video, text, and sound into a process-based installation that meets Chicago at the shore of Lake Michigan.

Collectively concerned with voltages, frequencies, and modulations, each member brings a different sensibility to the group employing all manner of sonic manipulations, from analog synthesizers, to digital instruments, to live audio streams from far away spaces, hand-built oscillators, and other frequencies from across the electromagnetic spectrum.

Solace 2013

2012's Drone for the End of Time was such a blast that we've decided to make it an annual event in celebration of the winter solstice. In the same spirit of solstice celebrations throughout history, Solace is a 12-hour participatory drone conceived as a moment of respite from all forms of holiday chaos, and an opportunity to process all that has happened in the year that has passed; all are welcome.

B Radio: Pirate Picnic in the Bermuda Triangle

Five jolly NRRF pirates set out to sea in their sloop to ride the radio waves. They quickly encounter a massive storm which diverts them into the Bermuda Triangle, where the ship is scuttled and underwater adventures abound, complete with creatures massive and minute, friendly and menacing. Finally they wash up on a remote island, and have to fend for themselves. This backyard radio event includes a cooking demonstration.

Frock Talk

Using fabric as a connective device and social metaphor for this exhibit, Kristin Mariani examines the edges of internal cuts in cloth, areas intentionally perforated, and ruptures that occur as a function of wear and use as opportunities to create connections socially and materially. Frock Talk is a bring-your-own-content event, drawing from ruptures, connections, and binding processes where all forms of media and expression are welcome.

Fereshteh Toosi: Red Crystal Palace

Fereshteh Toosi’s radio piece is based on a live public performance and investigating political involvement, malaise, and optimism. Red Crystal Palace was a mobile tent with a crystal ball inside, operated by a nurse seeking predictions about the future from people on the street. In exchange, the nurse shared free tea and red crystals with participants. Interviews were recorded in 2007: March 26 and July 21 in Chicago, April 7 in Los Angeles and May 6 in Washington DC.
