Rock’s Role (After Ryoanji)

(Art In General) Used CD $20.00

Responding to John Cage’s musical translations of the famed Japanese rock garden Ryonanji, the audio works in this exhibition are installed in a novel way to create an aural environment in which the pieces can be heard both individually and simultaneously. The speakers from which the sounds are broadcast are arranged to visually mimic the stones and space of the garden. Like the garden, which cannot be viewed in its entirety from any one point, Rock’s Role offers a separate experience from each position within the gallery. Tracks by Andrew Neumann, Barbara Held, Bernhard Gál, Brenda Hutchinson, Damian Catera, David Galbraith, David Matorin, Ed Tomney, Future Remix, Gabriel Burian-Mohr, John Hudak, Maggi Payne, Masahiko Sunami, Michael J.
