RAFT: Transmissions



The live performance recording of Transmissions, Long Tones in A and E by artist Pat Noecker aka RAFT performed by the composer and 10 musicians installed throughout the Pioneer Works' building, during the May 2015 Second Sundays open house, in conjunction with a specially designed app that involved audience participation on their mobile devices.

The Transmissions app was designed by Noecker and developed by Johann Diedrick. Raft, the world’s first cellphonist, believes that APPS and smart phones do not have to isolate us and that they can facilitate unified and collaborative creative events.

Transmissions utilizes the cavernous Pioneer Works space as a resonant casing, the audience members with the app as the tweeters, and the ensemble as the woofer.

With performers Pat Spadine, Michael Durek, Tracy Brooks, Victoria Keddie, Dana Schecter, Laura Ortman, Ted McGrath, Aaron Moore, and Michael Garofalo.

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. .
