Drawing Under the Influence (of Sound): Foucault, Grover, and Coolidge at Micaela Gallery

January 9, 2010

The third installment of our collaboration took place last night at Micaela Gallery, and all involved agree that this is the best result yet. Specific refinements made this iteration better extend ideas explored in September at the LAB’s art.tech festival. Thanks to the know-how and gear-requisitioning of Jonathan Grover, the drawing table is equipped with a pair of transducers, turning its surface into a hi-fi resonator. Peter Foucault, the visual artist whose work is on display this month at Micaela and the creator of this drawing project, made new enhancements to the robot that heightened its sound sensitivity. For my part, my audio performance mashed loops and tracks culled from my studio work with bass-drone riffs, yielding new syntheses for three compositions.
