Premonition 2037

In the spirit of the 1960s project of the Museum of Modern Art Oxford, to make contemporary art freely accessible to the widest audience, the artists produce an archive of recorded sounds - auditory traces of activity in the gallery, available for use by a future public, without restriction and beyond the scope of the current copyright term.

Tape hiss, voices, musical fragments, audience shuffles and applause, recorded at past public events, are digitized from videotapes and audio cassettes held in the MAO archive, to generate a new sonic inventory. The artists process the archival sounds using emerging information retrieval technologies, to create a bank of source material and a new work for exhibition. A series of live events with invited collaborators, reanimate these sounds on a specially assembled platform. The events will be recorded and released with copyleft licenses.

Free events:

Thursday 5th May, 7pm
