Tetraphonics: Hubble (Ben Greenberg)



Ben Greenberg’s Hubble project feels like the jeweled shrine of a road-worn head. Meditative, acute, and unrelenting, his gift to the listener is the expansion of the medium itself. Having cut his teeth in numerous bands such as Pygmy Shrews, Zs, and most recently with The Men, Greenberg has been fostering and cultivating his own unique reexamination of the the guitar as an instrument, resulting in a minimalist and truly psychedelic whirlwind of notes. A collaboration with like-minded locals Amen Dunes (Sacred Bones Records) and the recent addition of Greenberg's own vocals have demonstrated the flexibility of the Hubble concept, not just a sonic end but a modular approach that is able to inhabit and transcend genre and expectation.

This recording was made live in concert as part of the Clocktower's March 2016 Tetraphonics event presented in collaboration with Lea Bertucci at Pioneer Works where four artists explored quadraphonic sound and its mesmeric effects in performance alongside 4-channel video work.

Recordings by Alex Thompson in partnership with Harvestworks.

RADIO SERIES

Clocktower Exhibits & Events is home to an archive of interviews with artists, curators, musicians, organizers, and more who have participated in Clocktower exhibitions and events throughout our organization’s history.

Many of the below recordings were documented while Clocktower was in the midst of a transformation. The original name, The Clocktower Gallery, was given to the exhibition, residency, and performance space in TriBeCa, founded by alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After 2001, the Clocktower Gallery re-inaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of Art International Radio. In 2013, we moved on from our downtown Manhattan location, and have since renamed the organization Clocktower Productions, a title which encompasses our radio, exhibition, and event programming.

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.
