Low Noise Free Opening Reception
: Friday, February 3, 2017, 6-9pm
Standing as geometric icons to decay and obsolescence, Terence Hannum presents several large-scale collage works which focus on a variety of textures, all exhumed from the discarded remains of commercial analog audio cassette tapes: colorful strips of leader tape and reflective brown Mylar, along with the gritty black marks made from peeling the magnetic dust from the backing. Hannum's installation within Low Noise entitled Endless Gate emits a vocal drone loop through the use of two reel-to-reel tape players and spliced audiotape, the length of which is determined by the architecture of the space.
Serving as both sculptural intervention and meditative sound piece, this work harkens to the Apocrypha of Brian Eno's recording method and to Minimalist sculpture. With LOW NOISE, Hannum, a prolific musician who appears solo, with metal trio Locrian (Relapse Records) and dream-pop trio The Holy Circle, asks us to consider both the living and the dead states of recorded media.
