For SEED 01 CT::SWaM was hosting a collective, process-based, durational, spatial-sound group improvisation activating the entire space of the gallery. Through different strategies of sonic exchange, a variety of instrumentations and a networked system we were exploring the concept of “peripheral listening”.
: The first event presented under the CT::SWaM umbrella was in April 2012 at Eyebeam in Chelsea. The series evolved to hosting many concert events, workshops, a radio show, a monthly salon. and a virtual reality exhibit. : Now 2022, all too disruptive to comfortably call this event a celebration. Yet, we want to offer t i m e – to focus on listening, on sensing over longer duration, on dialog; t i m e for two duos, collaborations, in 8-channel space. : 10 years went by : :: :: :: :: :: : DANI DOBKIN / MATT SARGENT GIDEON CREVOSHAY / DEVIN GREENWOOD
