About this project

In October 2014, Brooklyn experimental arts presenter ISSUE Project Room will launch Distributed Objects, a new publishing imprint featuring recorded and written documents focused on emerging artistic practices. Double 12" LPs (editions of 500) by Sabisha Friedberg and Sergei Tcherepnin inaugurate the imprint.  Pledge now to receive discounted copies of these records and fund production costs for this important initiative.  


Sabisha Friedberg with Peter Edwards: The Hant Variance - 2xLP

Sabisha Friedberg’s double 12" LP The Hant Variance was recorded at EMPAC with Peter Edwards in a custom-tuned environment using advanced multi-channel recording techniques to capture a configuration of specialized sound sources. Combining granular synthesis, analogue synthesizers, tone oscillators and field recordings, the composition is comprised of three movements.Thematically, the title The Hant Variance is inspired by the writings of Vic Tandy, who purports that certain psychic phenomena and apparitions manifest, or are perceived as such, when ELF’s (extremely low-frequencies) are present. The low-end bass, which was recorded live with a subwoofer configuration that allowed for rapid directional shifts, serves as a sonic armature for the piece. Sustained pure tones shift minimally and the allocation of sound engenders a sense of aural disorientation. This landscape, with the premise of summoning a new phantom or haunted sonic space, exists in an interstitial, albeit present zone.

Born in Johannesburg South Africa, Sabisha Friedberg’s composition, performance and installation work draws on the phenomenological and phantasmagorical, exploring perceptual delineation of space through sound, and low-end experiential thresholds. She has performed and presented installations widely in Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, Japan, and the US, and recently received commissions through residencies at ISSUE Project Room, EMPAC, and The Clocktower Gallery. In 2013 she presented the solo exhibition “Levitation” at Audio Visual Arts. Friedberg received her MFA from Bard College following undergraduate studies at San Francisco Art Institute. Peter Edwards is an American artist and musician living in Holland, best known for his DIY experimental electronics website casperelectronics. His work has been presented internationally at venues including The MIT Media Lab, Transmediale, Dutch Electronic Arts Festival, New York Electronic Arts Festival, and Performa, among others.


Sergei Tcherepnin: Quasar ⇔ Lanterns - 2xLP

Sergei Tcherepnin’s Quasar ⇔ Lanterns was originally produced in 2009 as an 8-channel installation with Ei Arakawa at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart. Remixed to stereo for this double 12" LP release, Tcherepnin’s trio of works combine analog synthesizer recordings and other instrumental sources with field recordings captured during the artists’ travels to Turkey and Georgia. Each piece introduces a separate facet of Tcherepnin’s compositional practice, respectively probing the boundaries between perception/hallucination, active/passive listening, and form/fiction. In the first piece, titled Death (Quasar), recordings of an acoustic bass played by Adam Linson function as “sound meteors,” creating fissures and tears as they rip through a stable yet shifting aural field. Sky follows with a series of clear and high ear tones, unfolding as a succession of subtle sonic events. The final piece Horse explores the rhythmic and textural qualities of recorded horse hooves moving across stone, assembling the sounds into a sonic fiction in which horses and their riders leave the earth via flying carpets (objects referenced in the original installation).

Sergei Tcherepnin is a Brooklyn-based artist and musician. His work constructs temporary architectural interventions that push phenomena of the sonorous towards the haptic through performance, composition, and installation, exploring the materiality of sound and its physical and psychological effects on the listener. Recent performances and installations have been held at the 2014 Whitney Biennial, the 30th Sao Paulo Biennial, Guggenheim Museum, Audio Visual Arts, Murray Guy, and ISSUE Project Room.

ABOUT DISTRIBUTED OBJECTS
Distributed Objects, a new publishing imprint of acclaimed experimental performance space ISSUE Project Room, will feature recorded and written documents focused on emerging artistic practices. Releases will draw primarily from work and writings of participants in ISSUE’s Artist-in-Residence program, alongside previously unreleased historical materials forthcoming, published in tandem to create a broader contextual framework. Distributed Objects seeks to expand the discourse around the time-based performances developed at ISSUE Project Room by disseminating artists’ writings, interviews, and unique recorded materials, offering new perspectives into the contemporary creative community local to New York City.

ABOUT ISSUE PROJECT ROOM
ISSUE Project Room is a pioneering performance center, presenting time-based work by emerging and established experimental artists that expand the boundaries of creative practice and stimulate critical dialogue about art and culture in the broader community. ISSUE plays a vital role in NYC’s cultural ecology, facilitating the commission and premiere of new works and presenting a diverse array of artists working across and between the disciplines of sound, dance, film, performance and literature. Programming places an emphasis on bringing recognition to creative practitioners whose important contributions to the artistic field are underrepresented, often as a result of the artists’ gender, sexuality, or geographic location. Through the cultivation of innovative new work, ISSUE performs an essential research and development function that fosters a dynamic influx of ideas into the local, national, and international creative landscape.
