Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Peals, Time is a Milk Bowl

Clocktower Productions and Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation presented the immersive, site-specific installation and performance, Time is a Milk Bowl in January 2015 with video projections from artist Zoe Friedman and music from the band Peals (William Cashion of Future Islands and Bruce Willen of Double Dagger). This is the live concert recording from that event.

The evening began with a performance of electronic sounds and video by @@, that is the Ableton-wielding Paul Wheeler with video montage by Arrien Zinghini . The second part of this program features the live concert audio recording from that portion of the event.

Time is a Milk Bowl was originally performed in April 2013 in the interior of Baltimore's Bromo Seltzer clock tower with music specifically designed for the space. The recording from the Bromo Seltzer Tower performance is available on one side of a cassette/digital recording called Seltzer (Thrill Jockey Records).

Peals is a music project crafting meditative and exploratory headphone panoramas, incorporating elements of ambient, folk, krautrock, punk, and experimental music. They have performed in BMA's Spring House. Peals released their debut album Walking Field in 2013 on Thrill Jockey Records.


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. .
