Muck Interview

Joe Ahearn sits down and speaks with the Icelandic hardcore/punk band Muck. As the winter 2013 Clocktower band in-residence, the group discusses their experience in New York and their music. During the interview, the band plays their newly recorded songs Ferming, Wake Sleep, and an in-studio improvisation. The segment also features songs by Klink, Zewd, and Swirlies, some of Muck's influences.

The five band members featured in this in-studio performance include Ási Thórdarson on drums, Fridrik Helgason as engineer, Indridi Arnar Ingólfsson on guitar and vocals, Karl Torsten Ställborn on guitar, and Loftur Einarsson on bass.



Clocktower Exhibits & Events


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. .
