Ebe Oke, OBID



The composer, performer, poet, and Clocktower artist-in-residence premiered Movement I, the first of four planned movements for OBID, his string quartet inspired by birds and synæsthesia. The performance took place at Pioneer Works during the July 2014 Second Sundays festivities. Following the performance, Oke sat down with Clocktower Radio's David Weinstein to discuss the background of the piece and his own story of a life that began on an exotic bird farm in Georgia and a path that led him to Stockhausen, Brian Eno, and Laurie Anderson, for whom the piece is dedicated.

The performing ensemble is Audrey Morse – violin, Andrew Pak – violin, Beth Holub – viola, and Luna Shyr – cello.

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. .
