Anxious Spaces 2014: Bubbles



A live recording of the synth-pop duo Bubbles performing in DIY guru Christian Joy's Bok Joy installation for the Anxious Spaces: Performance Festival at Knockdown Center. Bubbles is comprised of Jason P. Grisell (vocals, electronics, live instruments) and Alain Levitt (beats, electronics). Their sound mixes ecstatic wordplay and vocals, inventive beatmaking, low-end frequencies, noise guitar, melodic bass guitar lines, and synth. Inspired by classic dance floor styles of downtown NYC circa the 1980s, among many other genres, the beats brought the festival crowd to their feet and grooving alongside the Bok Joy dancers.

The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
