Contemporary - Sound Installation

Carol Wyss and Dominic Murcott; Graeme Miller; Dirty Electronics and Dushume - Not Necessarily in the Right Order

Tue-Fri: 11-5pm; Sat: 11-4pm

Taking its cue from the celebrated Morcambe and Wise sketch with ‘special guest’ Andre Previn, this exhibition engages with its invited participants in testing concepts of order in sound.

Eric’s punchline: ‘I’m playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order’ evokes the Laßwitz / Borges allegories of the ‘universal library’ (Library of Babel), a conceptual library containing the countless numbers of books of a determinate length necessary to have every possible ordering of sensible and nonsensical words.

The fitting application of this concept to the medium of sound is what makes the joke so enduring, and this also lays out ground for the works encountered in this exhibition. Variation and external intervention, is built into all of the works. They are spatially presented, though at times sharing the same sound space, so the time and passage of their audiences’ visits also becomes a factor in altering how the works are experienced.
