Land of Tomorrow is no stranger to mixing audio and visual art mediums. The meticulously curated fringe art space in downtown Louisville celebrated its 2010 opening with a free Bear In Heaven show. Noise and avant garde musicians often provide the soundtrack to a variety of multimedia installations. Land of Tomorrow’s exhibits aim to highlight the fluidity between visual art and music – no where more evident than The Expanded Music Project, opening this Friday, November 18th.
The exhibit, which runs throughout December and into the new year, features some extremely exciting names from both spheres. Circuit-bending soothsayers Peaking Lights and artist Letitia Quesenberry collaborate on “Sound Garden,” an installation that sonically replicates a Japanese rock garden using consumer electronics. Perennial Altered Zones favorite EMA and artist Jacob Huestis team up to construct an interactive recording booth that will give gallery goers a chance to record their own demo and steer the aural vibes of the piece.
Other participating artists include Saiman Chow, responsible for the anthropomorphically bizarre images for Ariel Pink’s Round and Round, formidable hypnagogic renaissance woman Geneva Jacuzzi, transatlantic glam kraut thrashers Thieves Like Us, Heather Cantrell, whose ongoing Study in Portraiture focuses on the distinct musical identity of the city hosting the exhibit, and many others.
The opening reception, starting at 7 p.m. is free and open to the public. If you find yourself within a reasonable distance of Louisville, you’d do well to drop in and tune out. More information at their Facebook event.
