Volume covers a new media terrain of sound, 3-d animation and video by bringing it into the gallery space. As technologies for new media work have allowed for new levels of complexity to flourish, it gives rise to that complexity a need for a venue where it can be experienced. The concept of the exhibition is to use the entire gallery space and its entire audience as its participators and creators. It amplifies sound into a complex layered form of the show itself. In the activity around the show, parts will be orchestrated and controlled, but most will be left untended. It signals the form of content to be interactive installations, filtering and rippling out across an increasingly uncontrollable terrain. By infiltrating almost every level of the gallery space, Volume will have a thoroughly deep understanding of this combined new media with acoustic and amplified sound meant to be encountered. Volume explores the evolution of sound art with narrative structures and compositional methods for the creation of interactive sound installation, sound sculpture, and live performance projects.
