In the Main Space
OCEAN MIND is a brand new multi-channel, electro/acoustic sound installation by Vermont musician/composer Greg Davis. The installation features 5 gongs (ranging in size from 12″-28″) which are activated and sounded by small motors, creating a continuous wash of blissful metallic overtones. The electronic component of the installation consists of 4 loudspeakers and multiple handheld cassette players playing long loops of spectrally processed gong tones. The processed gong tones create ghost-like waves related to the acoustic gong sounds. All of the elements are spatialized around the gallery to make a multi-dimensional sound environment with infinite changing perspectives as the listener moves about the room. The sum of all the parts creates an immersive, meditative, deep listening space perfect for clearing one’s mind and bringing us all back (or forward) to the present moment.
The opening of the sound installation will be followed by a rare live performance of analog synthesizer music by Greg Davis, Keith Fullerton Whitman & Ben Vida.
