Finally posted a project description/musing on the Grand Central listening experiment! Take a look at it here.
We are looking to plan another Group Listening Alone meeting for the spring. Let us know if you have any ideas about places and pieces to pair up.
For those interested in spaces and sounds, we’ll be holding a listening experiment in the Main Concourse at Grand Central Terminal Friday, December 10th, at 7pm. A group of us will listen to Steve Reich’s seminal piece Music for 18 Musicians at the same time on our ipods, phones, whatevers while wandering/observing/experiencing this iconic space. The experience looks to examine parallels in micro and macro aspects of the piece and the place. Also, through simultaneously listening to the same piece in our own earbud worlds, we will be exploring tensions surrounding the creation of a personal identity in a social space.
The only thing you have to do is get ahold of an mp3 of Music for 18 Musicians (email us if you are interested and maybe we can figure something out). The piece is 57 minutes long so be prepared!
We will meet at the info kiosk in the center of the hall at 7.
DoTank:Brooklyn wrapped-up its participation in the Golden Blueprints show at WG Gallery in Greenpoint. Thanks to the organizers for getting us involved!
The show’s theme asked local artists to envision and present plans for improvements of the neighborhood. While adressing the theme of the show, DoTank presented the results of actually doing something to improve the neighborhood: ’chairbombing’ in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Both a video and an artifact were presented.

On April 25, 2009, more than 120 illegal billboards were whitewashed and replaced with art as part of the New York Street Advertising Takeover, a demonstration against illegal billboards in NYC. I followed street artists I Am, Posterchild, and Teeth as they installed their work.
