Zimoun



A conversation and listening session with Swiss installation artist Zimoun onsite with his kinetic sculpture assembled at Knockdown Center in Maspeth, Queens in February 2015. The piece consists of 250 thin wooden boards, each tied to a rotating motor, that rise and drop in an unsynchronized dance of motion and klangfarben. The artist is visiting to oversee three concurrent exhibitions hosted by bitforms gallery at the Simons Center on the Stony Brook campus (through 9 April 2015), at the gallery home base on Allen Street (through 15 March) and at Knockdown (through 8 March).

Here is video of the Knockdown Center piece:

Experimental Composers

RADIO SERIES

The object of this series is to invite emerging and established innovators to share their work. These programs are usually a combination of an interview with a far-reaching perspective on the artist's career, some recordings illustrating this history, and something new. Open territory. The unfortunate and unintended messages that come attached to a title like Experimental Composers are many. Still it is one of the few labels to come out of the world of music that has not been co-opted by promoters, corporations, journalists, or lawyers. This one just seems to have anti-market goo on it. Hooray. It's also just bad English (as if to imply that these poor souls are themselves, in their flesh and blood, some kind of experiment and, perhaps, even expendable). And then there is the spectre of defying the wisdom of the great Edgar Varèse who said something like, "I do not write experimental music. My experimenting is done before I make the music. Afterwards it is the listener who must experiment."
