Swing Space residents ((audience)) presenting work at Ramiken Crucible on June 5

From ((audience)) and Ramiken Crucible:

The New York premiere of ((audience)), a 5.1 surround sound festival, will take place June 5, 2010 at Ramiken Crucible. The day of screenings will be followed by an evening concert of experimental noise, featuring MV Carbon & Tony Conrad, DUBKNOWDUB, and Loud Objects. All events will occur at the gallery in complete darkness.

Conceived in 2006, the centerpiece of ((audience)) is a 2 1/2 hour program of 5.1 surround sound works by eight international artists, presented in the dark. This immersive experience in cinematic audio features works by Jamie Allen, Bryan Jacobs, the Loud Objects, Simona Brinkmann, Uli Schuster, Natasha Barrett, Emmanuel Madan and Anna Friz, and Cedric Maridet. The ((audience)) program will be screened three times in complete darkness: 11am, 1:30pm, and 4pm. Audience members may come and go from the screenings, but may enter only at intermissions. Timetables for individual works will be posted outside Ramiken Crucible.

In the evening, ((audience)) will host an experimental noise concert featuring MV Carbon & Tony Conrad, DUBKNOWDUB, and Loud Objects. Admission to the evening concert is $10 - $20, sliding scale, and will benefit ((audience)) programs and artists.
