new drawing at parallel vienna 2015


We cordially invite you to the opening of our exhibition on
Tuesday, September 22nd, 6 pm.
23. - 27.09.2015, 12 am - 7 pm
Alte Post, Dominikanerbastei, 1010 Vienna.
In September 2015 czirp czirp is participating in the art show PARALLEL VIENNA with a group presentation. The artists FÉLICIA ATKINSON (FR)JONÁŠ GRUSKA (SK),ANTONIA KUO (USA)MERJA KOKKONEN (FIN) and STEVE RODEN (USA) express themselves both through sound and visual art.
The selection of artworks and artists approaches is of heterogeneous character. The intention in this exhibition is to emphasize on the plurality of concepts dealing with sound aesthetics.
As the focus in past projects had mainly been on live music performance and sound installations with ephemeral character, czirp czirp now turned to choosing works from a representational angle addressing the possibilities of visual artistic expression developed through sound.
These visualizations of sonic perception are to be seen in relation to the predominantly visual or context based conceptions and attempts to understand art as well as current aesthetic approaches. What unfolds are questions directing to accessibility and distribution of art works, poetics and language as well as a Materialist understanding of sound embedded in the process of artist's work.
Looking forward to see you!

free download new record with glenn bach

water in the hollow eyes of the blue, finally

by Steve Roden & Glenn Bach

In 2012, Glenn Bach and Steve Roden were invited to create a live soundtrack to Bleu Remix, a performance-installation by Yann Marussich, where the artist reclines inside a glass box, and, over time, begins to sweat blue pigment from the pores in his skin, manifesting the act of movement by remaining perfectly still. 

Using source files provided by Marussich, Bach and Roden created a palette of sonic material for the evening's performance, transforming the original sounds beyond recognition. During the concert, Bach and Roden processed the sounds yet again, live, as the audience contemplated Marussich reclining, and sweating, in his glass vitrine. 

The resulting concert recordings inspired a subsequent studio session in Roden's garage, where the artists improvised an entirely new interpretation of the sound sources throughout the various stages of transformation. The resulting performance was recorded live with no overdubs.
