It has been almost a month since Sound Through Barriers’ 2012 exhibition was wrapped up and de-installed. The project was a monumental success, hundreds of visitors attended both the exhibition at Art Lab Fort Collins and the two performances by Jeph Jerman and Cheryl E. Leonard.

In the intervening month I’ve been hard at work archiving the sights & sounds from the project, with photos we took and those that people have kindly sent us (if you have any photos of your visit, please send them my way!) and with several hours worth of sound recordings.

I’ve updated the site with this material, to serve both as an aid to memory for those who visited, and as a resource for people interested in the use of sound in art.

There are a few key areas on the website I’d like to point out:

1.) The Virtual Gallery is where you’ll find information about each piece included in the exhibition, including photos with audience and without, links to the artist’s websites and sound recordings of the pieces within the context of the gallery space (interacting with the other sounding works).

2.) The Performances page is where photos & sound / video recordings of the performances by visiting artists are housed. Right now you can find two files containing recordings of both of Jeph Jerman’s performances in their entirety, along with video documentation of one of them. There are also sound files of one of the question and answer sessions and the introductory remarks.

3.) The Curator’s Note is a manifesto-like statement declaring some of my views about sound and listening that led to the particular thrust of this project.
