Disquiet.com’s Marc Weidenbaum and the other participants in the San Jose Museum Momentum Installation talk about their respective interventions.
The San Jose Museum of Art has uploaded this eight-minute video featuring the various folks who, like me, contributed works as “interveners” for its current Momentum exhibit, which celebrates the museum’s 45th anniversary. I talk in the video at 2:52 and 3:59.
My piece is “Sonic Frame,” a response in three screens to a video by Josh Azzarella. Each screen contains a unique set of seven different audio tracks composed to complement it, so each time the video plays anew it is accompanied by different sounds. Among the participating musicians are Taylor Deupree, Natalia Kamia, Julia Mazawa, Steve Roden, Naoyuki Sasanami, Christina Vantzou, Stephen Vitiello, and Scanner.
The Momentum exhibit runs from October 2, 2014, through February 22, 2015. More on the exhibit here (“How Sound Frames Vision”) and at sjmusart.org. Video hosted at youtube.com.

What happens when a museum invites a ballet dancer, a bicycle designer, a bodypainter, a calligrapher, a cartoonist, a comedian, an inventor, a poet, a sound artist, and a yarn-bomber to “intervene” in an exhibition? Learn about the ten super creative people behind the exhibition “Momentum: an experiment in the unexpected.” The exhibition is on view through February 22, 2015.
The exhibit runs through 22 February 2015.
