CT::SWaM presents “#VRstilllistening” – a first ever venture into Virtual Reality for us, a space for spatial sound works, featuring Merche Blasco, Richard Garet, Lee Gilboa, Neil Leonard, Cecilia Lopez, Daniel Neumman, DM R, Michael J. Schumacher, Bora Yoon and Yifeat Ziv.
The CT::SWaM #VRstilllistening quadrant is part of pavilion 58 in the large Wrong Biennial which describes itself as “a collaborative effort harnessing the potential of the internet, shaped as a decentralized global art biennale & tv channel”. Thank you Matthew D. Gantt, George Vitale, Jeffrey Grunthaner and Synthesis Gallery for inviting us to join.
Over the course of the biennial, running from Nov 1 2021 – Mar 1 2021, we’ll be developing and adding new works and we’ll also be hosting a number of talks, workshops and other events.
Please note:: Our pavilion no. 58 officially opens on Nov 18.
Furthermore the #VRstilllistening space contains a “phone booth” where you can dial up the various episodes of our webradio show Broadband Echos.
CT::SWaM Broadband Echos is an online radio show connected to CT::SWaM [Contemporary Temporary:: Sound Works and Music] – an artist-run series focusing on spatial sound works, based in New York City. Episodes feature a combination of works from the CT::SWaM archive, new performance formats, discussions and artist interviews. Theories and approaches to spatial sound composition are explored, while also addressing the complexity and subjectivity of translating spatial works to the radio format and reflecting on the ways in which our relationship and interaction has changed by the enclosed social reality of the current day.
Hosted on CKweb, Bogota and available in English and Spanish.
