Hello everyone, and thanks to Jim for inviting me to join this stellar group of discussants for this week.
One strategy for curating multiple sound works is to present them in conversation with one another, quite physically, rather than trying to maintain their status as totally discrete pieces. I had a very fruitful experience last year doing a show
in Chicago with the duo Coppice, where we each installed an audio work at the art and media space TriTriangle, with the idea that the pieces would function as a kind of ecosystem. My work was a multi-channel transmission piece using suspended radio receivers and transmitters, while Coppice's piece used small speakers attached to the walls near the floor. The works literally and figuratively overlapped, occupying different strata in the space. It was especially interesting to experience each work in the context of the other; how they were reframed by this meeting, which sounds were clearly of one or the other work, which sounds were composite or could belong to either. Obviously this sort of solution is not appropriate to every situation, but I see much potential for this approach both practically and theoretically.
all the best,
