Auditorium Preview



Jake Nussbaum hosts composers and event organizers including Lea Bertucci, Tristan Shepherd, Marina Rosenfeld, and Sabisha Friedberg, to discuss AUDITORIUM, an epic evening of immersive music and sound at Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens. Topics include how to compose for a 50,000 sq. foot space and how to prepare yourself for a day of continuous sound.

AUDITORIUM is an extended evening of site-specific electronic and electroacoustic performances organized by artists/curators Lea Bertucci and Tristan Shepherd. The focal point for this event is a custom 10-channel sound system installed throughout the 50,000 square feet of Knockdown Center. This system will act as the point of departure for multichannel works by innovative sound-based artists Nate Wooley, Sabisha Friedberg, Marina Rosenfeld, Woody Sullender, Phill Niblock, and Katherine Liberovskaya. Bertucci and Shepherd commission new works artists whose work represents diverse perspectives, some as instrumentalists, others who come from a sculptural/installation based sound practice and still others whose work centers more on composition.

The project culminates in a day long event in which the selected artists present their projects on site in a roving auditory experience.

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.
