Presenting: Invisible Cities
Curated by Fällt designers Fehler, 'Invisible Cities' offers the
opportunity to experience an intimate series of portraits of twenty
of the world's cities painted with sound.
Twenty artists were invited to contribute a five minute audio work inspired
by and utilising the sounds of the cities they cherished. Their contributions
range from quiet and contemplative to noisy and frenetic with styles
ranging from the pristine digital crackles of Washington DC based artist
Richard Chartier to the near-silence of Tokyo based ultra-minimalist
*0 (Nosei Sakata). 'Invisible Cities' was commissioned by the Naughton
Gallery at Queen_s for Belfast Festival at Queen_s 2002.
