Sound and Space Experiments
Have you ever been inspired to explore an abandoned building? Have you ever caught yourself enjoying the rhythmic sounds of industrial machines or the whirr of reversing jet engines? If so, on April 25, 2009, minicine? invites you to the Shreveport Waterworks Museum in the McNeill Street Pumping Station to search and discover new sound works and installations by artists working at the boundaries of their media. Sound and Space Experiments will be an exploration of found sounds, electronic manipulations, classical and improvised instrumentation, within the voluminous and diverse spaces of the pumping station. Doors will open at 7pm to soundscapes throughout the facility generated by local sound and noise artists, Generic Air, Jon Mackey, Ian Quiet and a site-specific installation by The Occidentalists. The evening will culminate with a special performance by the avant-garde New York City downtown sound artists, Phantom Orchard.
