Artist: MIGONE, CHRISTOF
Title: Crackers
Format: CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $15.50
"In 1997, electronic sound installation artist Christof Migone enlisted the bodily aid of a group of Canadians through classified ads and over the radio for a cracking session and interview at Ottawas Gallery 101. A what, you ask? Part ambient sound investigation and part wacked out art science project, Crackers is a 7 track collection of unadulterated recordings and clever digital remixes of the sounds of cracking knuckles, knees, wrists, jaws, toes, ankles, backs, necks, elbows, and hips. The percolating, popping polyrhythms are at once amusingly bubbly and oddly trance inducing. Cheaper than a trip to the chiropractor and far more entertaining. Crackers was first presented as an installation in a group show curated by Emmanuel Madan entitled Incredibly Soft Sounds at Gallery 101, in January 1998 (originally documented in an exhibition catalog and limited cd-r). Documentation of Crackers was also featured in Site Of Sound: Of Architecture And The Ear, a book with CD edited by Brandon LaBelle and Steve Roden (Los Angeles: Errant Bodies Press, 1999) and presented the following year as a solo installation curated by Michael J. Schumacher and Ursula Scherrer at Studio 5 Beekman in New York City, January 2000." - Locust
