Brian is an artist living and working in upstate New York. He is the co-founder and director of Transient Visions: Festival of the Moving Image and his work has been exhibited at the Western New York Book Arts Center in Buffalo, the Gagosian Gallery in New York and at the Visual Studies Workshop Rochester.

Early One Morning, a solo exhibition by IEA artist Roberley Bell will be opening on September 9th, 2016, at the BT&C Gallery in Buffalo, NY. Early One Morning will include both sculpture and photographic work by Bell, who is best known for her sculptural and installation work that creates a dialogue between our interior and exterior worlds, as well as nature and its synthetic likeness. Included in the show are print works Bell produced during her residency in June, 2016, of her documentation of towels hung out to dry in various locations in Istanbul, Turkey; a common sight on the city’s streets which Bell uses almost as a color study of an otherwise mundane city color pallet.

Early One Morning runs from September 9th to October 22nd, with an opening event on September 9th from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

Our colleague Andrew Deutsch will have show opening soon in the Project Space of the Burchfield Penney Art Center if Buffalo, NY.

Object as Energy Point is an evolving and growing piece which started in 1995 – it began with a 12 x 6 inch wooden box. Created by artist Andrew Deutsch, every object in the show is a loudspeaker, a transducer, or a metaphor for a speaker. It incorporates ceramic glazed elements as metaphors for “klangfarben” and their arrangement as “klangfarbenmelodie” (tone color and tone color melody).

The installation extends beyond a symphonic-sculptural speaker display to include videos or “Electro-dynamic Drawings”. The projected visual content is generated by a process in which sound is the source for the image (this is known as audio reactive art). The result is a visual electronic landscape, generated by and inter-modulated with sound.

Object as Energy Point will be on view from April 8th – July 24, 2016 with an opening event on April 8th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

Brett and Jeremiah performing Sine Qua Non

The IEA welcomed back Brett Sroka of Brooklyn, NY as our artist in residence over the week of March 30th. A composer, musician and sound artist for film, dance, installation who has released five records with his electro-acoustic jazz trio Ergo, and melodronoise duo Cherubim, Brett is an accomplished jazz musician, proficient with the trombone and an array of other instruments, as well as an electronic musician and Max/MSP composer.

The primary focus of Brett’s residency was a new project entitled Syllable from Sound, a participatory installation that integrates the voices of it’s visitors into a modular composition. Volunteers from the community were invited to speak into a mic Brett’s Max patch was processing live, sampling and distorting the sounds, and having this sound play from one of four speakers positioned in the room. When a new sound was introduced it would be sent to a different speaker in the room and, when all of the speakers filled, an newly introduced sound would push the previous sound down in priority and eventually out of the composition entirely. A constantly shifting audio space full of the fleeting history of those who have passed by is created, with the potential for participants to impact the work in the same fleeting manner.

Brett also performed his piece Sine Qua Non during his time at the IEA on Wednesday, April 1st. Developed at the IEA and Vilnius Academy of Art – Nida Art Colony in Lithuania, Sine Qua Non is an improvisational performance that transforms into a generative sound installation. It was premiered at Roulette in Brooklyn, NY in 2014, with pianist Carl Maguire and has been performed at other venues since then. For the performance at the IEA Brett was accompanied by Jeremiah Cymerman, a composer, clarinetist, producer and sound engineer who has been described as “an impenitent genre-breaker whose membership among today’s greats must be granted now” (Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes). Brett and Jeremiah held a Q & A session after the performance and the installation component of Sine Qua Non was installed and ran in the Immersive Gallery space throughout the rest of Brett’s residency.

Below are images of Brett’s residency and a video of the Sine Qua Non performance.
