Perspectives on Microsound
October 2009

Diapason Gallery presents current perspectives on the idea of "microsound"- a technical term and also a musical genre - in honor of the 10th anniversary of the mailing list (founded by Kim Cascone). 10ms features multi-channel installations, sound objects, performances, lectures, texts, and other media.

Microsound is a term that encompasses explorations of sound on a time scale "shorter than musical notes." It includes and overlaps genres such as glitch music, granular synthesis, lowercase sound, etc.

Participating artists: Brett Ian Balogh, Riccardo Benassi, Kim Cascone, Thanos Chrysakis, Robert Curgenven, Taylor Deupree, Ian Epps, Patrick Franke, Heribert Friedl, Richard Garet, Sarah Karp, Kenneth Kirschner, Thomas K├Âner, Tomas Korber, Damian Marhulets, Mamoru Okuno, Kamran Sadeghi, Erik Schoster, Phillip Schulze, Bernd Schurer, Keiko Uenishi and Tamara Yadao
Curated by Daniel Neumann

Join us for a special celebratory dance party with djs showcasing microhouse through the past decade and live acts playing contemporary microsounds for the dancefloor.

About Diapason:
Since 2001, Diapason has been devoted to the presentation of sound art. The gallery, located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, contains two listening environments with state-of-the-art multi-channel sound systems: the "lounge" contains a 12 channel sound system placed asymmetrically around the space and the "gallery" is a focused listening environment with a high quality 8 channel system. Installation and performance proposals that consider site and spatialization as an important parameter are favored.
