Jr. Family Gallery will play host to a re-creation of an audio installation

. January 2, 2016.
Irving-Stenn

Starting January 23, the University of Michigan Museum of Art’s Irving Stenn, Jr. Family Gallery will play host to a re-creation of I am sitting in a room, an audio installation first performed in 1969 by famed composer Alvin Lucier. In his work, Lucier is heard reading a text, playing the recording back, and then re-recording it, looping it many times over until the words become unintelligible. The words are Lucier’s description of the process he is using to create the recording. The piece will explore the sonic dimensions of sound as it fills the gallery and transforms the space into an acoustic masterpiece. Runs through May 22.

Noon-5pm Sunday, closed Monday, 11am-5pm Tuesday-Saturday
$10/suggested donation
