"the sound of wall" opening TONIGHT + New Adds & Restocks
“the sound of wall”
installation + installation specific sound performance
by: (knee shy)
Tonight from 7-11pm
(knee shy) is a fun-loving art duo, and recent addition to the bulging rolodex of the Los Angeles art community. With their upcoming installation piece, “the sound of wall”, they plan to display their penchant for inclusive playfulness, as well as their love of the strange and beautiful.
The piece itself is essentially a large wall mounted string instrument to which most standard technical titles both do and do not apply. The 7 section unit contains in total 111 strings, some strung properly and others prepared with a variety of objects. The object is amplified both electrically and naturally, and fills the roll of several traditional instrument variants.
Guests are welcome to interact with the piece. For the opening of the installation, (knee shy) will also perform a sound piece composed specifically for the piece in it’s current tuning. It’s sure to be full of 4 handed plucking, bowing, string piano, and other extended technique action.
Tonight, along with the scheduled performance, (knee shy) will be joined by several musical guests. “the sound of wall” will be on exhibition and playable at Origami Vinyl from February 5th through March during normal store hours.
