Cleveland, OH, October 18, 2011—Christopher Auerbach-Brown, a Northeast Ohio experimental composer, creates an installation at SPACES using the gallery's large windows as both amplifiers and speakers. Sounds traveling through windows will be brought to life via contact microphones, wire coils and magnets, and occasional flashing lights. Windows will amplify sounds of the everyday for those in the galleries as well as individuals wandering by the galleries outside. This system will be utilized in performances both inside and, possibly, outside of the gallery.
He will also invite visitors to participate in "smartphone performances"—people will be able to use their smartphones as musical instruments which also project colored light as the performers move more or less in sync with each other. Anyone can participate in these performances too, even children.
