Big Bang

We got a heads up from Chris Vecchio the other day about a great sounding show of sound art so we thought we’d make some noise about it.

The show, “Subtle Nothings” at Borowsky Gallery, is part of the ICA-sponsored “Big Nothing.” Vecchio, who shows at Nexus, is the local boy we recognized in a lineup that includes powerhouses Meredith Monk (shown with Ann Hamilton in their piece “Mercy”) and Liz Phillips.


Vecchio’s doing an installation, called “Sparkly Cube” (shown above). It’s an interactive piece that samples from a wide range of sources including police scanners, popular music, short wave and CB radio, and shared audio files.

Techno wizard Vecchio says he’s done tests on the new object. “Judging by preliminary tests conducted in my living room it should be a lot of fun. You pick up the cube and rotate it to navigate through an array of over 500 sound samples.”


Other artists featured in this show: Andy Holtin, Antenna and David McQueen. Ray Rapp (shown “Strobe”), also in this show, is currently featured in the “Working in Brooklyn” exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

The show runs from May 2nd to August 15th. The opening reception is this Sunday, May 2nd, from 3-5PM.
