Sound Digressions in Seven Colors

Feb. 25 - Mar. 25, 2006

Sound Digressions in Seven Colors is the culmination of several projects that Tony Oursler has been experimenting with for a number of years. A perpetually changing piece of music, this idea first took hold in Oursler's mind while at Cal Arts and attending lectures by John Cage. For this project, the performers were recorded and then recombined in an installation setting to experiment with chance recombination. Each performer was not told what the other one would play, only that they would be mixed with 6 other players. In this way, an exquisite corpse was developed between the players.
