Story Is … Crypto Acoustic

The artistry can fool completely says curator Marjorie Van Halteren of Andy Slater’s Crypto Acoustic Auditory Non-Hallucination and its accompanying ephemera studying a type of visual hallucination experienced by people with vision loss.

Memory Hole

Three sonic approaches weigh the heft of correcting the archives. They cast the granular scope of race and gender; the politics of radio art collections; the irony of sampling the sample, and in each, there is a reshaping. Featuring Ariana Martinez, Ricardo iamuuri Robinson & Karen Werner.
