Richard Garet: Sonic Construction for 4 Channels: The Other Side

Richard Garet will be presenting a new multichannel work Sonic Construction for 4 channels: The Other Side, 2017 of approximately 50’ and configured quadraphonically for a listening environment. Richard Garet’s approach to working with sound focuses on creating processes that interact and activate sonic material such as electromagnetic waves, treated tape and audiocassettes, cracked media, sonification of light and data, information noise, electrical phenomena and computer processing. Garet’s model is the background noise that surrounds him and his motive seeks to invert the normative function of this background noise from unconscious status to active presence. Garet’s sonic constructions evolve from explorations of sound within studio practice onto activating areal-location and physical space. These developments establish not only the artist’s interest for listening and affect, but also the awareness of sound in space for the same purpose. www.richardgaret.com
