Adam Murray believes sonic energy (vibration) is stored over time.  He is fascinated with the sound of that energy. The installation in this gallery space is the artist’s own experiment with the idea that sound is absorbed and contained within physical objects.  Four objects (a brick, a floorboard, a wine glass and a fork) inspired by objects in Caffe Boa, are suspended from the ceiling where they are set up to potentially receive audio from all sides – recording the history of this space through sound over the course of the exhibition.

 

Murray’s installation at Caffe Boa is an auditory interpretation of the aural events that fill the restaurant space, projected through speakers every hour on the hour.  It emanates into the environment and creates awareness of the physical space and history it contains. 

For the closing event of the exhibition, the artist will create a live sound performance in which he attempts to extract the aural events from the four objects, releasing the sounds which have been absorbed.

Tania Katan – Open for Business

Recent Living History Tours Presents…
Checked Out: The Rise and Fall of The Library Bar & Grill
Business – The Library Bar & Grill*

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Recent Living History Tours sets out to tell the stories of bus boys, waitresses, cobblers, jewelers and others who worked hard to create a sense of identity, purpose and income,  only to have their place of employment shut down. Recent Living History Tours is a series of monologue-tours given in public spaces; there is no admission fee, no items sold and very few props used. The tour guide (Pina Sbrocca) tries to inhabit characters that they know very little about because of social, economic and geographical distance. Recent Living History Tours explores what it means to reenact history as it unfolds and how our personal histories and professional personas are much closer than we think.

*The project was originally set to occur in The Library Bar & Grill location on Mill Avenue and 5th Street before they closed their doors in May of 2010. Katan’s original proposal was adjusted with the performance now appearing at the ASU Art Museum.
