Nicolas Schöffer audio files online

categories:

Nicolas SchöfferNicolas Schöffer

This audio art is sourced from the DVD of an exhibition of Nicolas Schöffer at Espace Gantner, France, 2004, titled “Précurseur de l’art cybernétique”, as well as various internet videos. The Lumino and Microtemps, 1968 and 1961 respectively, were not intended as sound sculptures, yet the noises they produce are definitely part of their appeal, not unlike Jean Tinguely’s own machines. Prisme, 1965, was an installation using mirrors, lighting effects and sound to virtually expand the structure’s actual size. It was re-build in 1975 in the Paris’ Sorbonne university with incidental music by Pierre Barbaud. The last track is from a British Pathé newsreel documenting Schöffer’s 1960 Institute of Contemporary Arts exhibition. It focuses on one of Schöffer’s most famous sculpture, CYSP 1 (for CYbernetics SPationdynamic). The electronic music used in the film is not credited.

Herb and Dorothy: A Glimpse into Their Extraordinary Collection

The Vogel Collection has been characterized as unique among collections of contemporary art, both for the character and breadth of the objects and for the individuals who created it. Herbert Vogel spent most of his life working as an employee of the United States Postal Service, and Dorothy Vogel was a reference librarian at the Brooklyn Public Library, New York. By setting their collecting priorities above those of personal comfort, the couple used Dorothy's salary to cover the expenses of daily life and devoted Herbert's salary to the acquisition of contemporary art.

Rammellzee, with his wack verbosity, is under appreciated in my opinion as a theorist. I have put most of his theory writings together here to encourage their study.

What you find here as sound/image/text draws from my 39,907 word cyber-sex farce called ‘~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~venus©-~Ñ~vibrator, even’ - which I wrote during my artist-in-residency at the Cite des Art International in Paris during 1995. I edited it to this final version in NYC in 1999.
