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.

Clocktower Exhibits & Events

RADIO SERIES

Clocktower Exhibits & Events is home to an archive of interviews with artists, curators, musicians, organizers, and more who have participated in Clocktower exhibitions and events throughout our organization’s history.

Many of the below recordings were documented while Clocktower was in the midst of a transformation. The original name, The Clocktower Gallery, was given to the exhibition, residency, and performance space in TriBeCa, founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After 2001, the Clocktower Gallery re-inaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of Art International Radio. In 2013, we moved on from our downtown Manhattan location, and have since renamed the organization Clocktower Productions, a title which encompasses our radio, exhibition, and event programming.

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.


NB: Clocktower Radio was launched by MoMA/PS1 in 2004 as the Web's first art radio station. It has been independent since 2009 and is licensed to host content created under PS1 management. Programs produced prior to 2011 may refer to our earlier URLs and station IDs, including WPS1.org, artonair.org, and Art International Radio.
