Friday, 1130 (
NYC): The Status of Sound
: Writing Histories of Sonic Art
at the Graduate Center of City University of New York: ‘The purpose of the conference is to tackle some of the methodological issues we face as art historians, dealing with sound art within a discipline couched in the visual. Rather than attempting to link “sound art” to a particular history, we hope this conference will provide some fruitful options for how to frame a history that is informed by both experiments in art and sound together using new theoretical and methodological models.’

Oxygen Starvation, Ouiaio Au (featuring Bobby Griffiths, Jax Deluca, and TJ Borden), and Partly Zombish. Show starts at 8pm. Price is $3. Come watch noise artists make a ruckus w/out the use of electricity or amplification.
