Incredibly Soft Sounds

    Thursday, January 8, 1998 to Saturday, February 7, 1998


    Incredibly Soft Sounds took the form of a group exhibition of audio art projects solicited from an open call for submissions. The theme suggests audio art projects solicited from an open call for submissions. The theme suggests audio art and music exploring the barely audible, the very small, the minute detail, the distant, the private, the personal, the fragile, the secret, the interior. The project was proposed as a means to offer visitors the opportunity to listen more closely to otherwise ignored elements of the sound environment. Incredibly Soft Sounds presented sound environments that are so quiet as to necessitate that the listeners stop everything else they are doing in order to hear anything at all. The gallery space was an ideal venue for the project in that it offered a controlled listening environment and an accessible exhibition space. Parallel to the installation, the Gallery also presented two concerts featuring music played at a minimum audible volume.
