With Yann Novak & Simon Whetham.
Daytime sounds on Rinconia Drive
Nighttime sounds on Rinconia Drive
Traffic sounds on Broadway and 2nd Street
Audience sounds at the Vanguard Gallery
were mixed and processed
in frequency, in time, and in space.
-Carl Stone, October 14, 1980
In Untitled (remodel) sound artists Yann Novak and Simon Whetham will reinterpret Carl Stone’s untitled performance at the Vanguard Gallery on October 14, 1980.
For their reinterpretation Novak will retrace Stone’s sound recordings by making similar recordings during the daytime and evening on Rinconia Drive and traffic sounds on Broadway and 2nd Street. These recordings will be digitally altered and incorporated into the performance.
Whetham will use radio transmissions to explore the room resonances and vocalization aspects of Stone’s performance. He will record both shortwave and fm signals in various locations in the room to exploit the various reflections and qualities of the space.
Whetham will also use the radio itself in the performance, tuning to random frequencies to add an unpredictability to the event that both artists will be forced to respond to.
