“StudioSound: George E. Lewis” – Studio Museum of Harlem

Now to March 15, 2009

“Lewis’s Travelogue is designed to create an environment that is influenced by the Studio Museum’s native sounds. It is not music so much as a sound composition. The sonic scenes do not impose, but blend and harmonize with the listener’s space. Travelogue is the work of an artist whose most famous creation was powered by programming and ideas of digital subjectivity turning his creative eye to simplicity, and producing something of wondrous complexity.”
