Peace in an Open Space sound art at DUCTAC
Peace in an Open Space, the latest short exhibition at DUCTAC's Gallery of Light, features a mixture of classic and contemporary sound art. The former includes Leopoldo Perez's reconstruction of Arseny Avraamov's revolution-era piece Symphony of Factory Sirens, as well as a very interesting audio documentary about its background and execution (both available on the exhibition's tumblr through the tablet provided by the gallery). There's also a player for Halim El-Dabh's mid 20th century haunting electronic music piece, The Expression of Za’ar. Worth checking out if you're into sound art.
