Closing Reception for Sound Art Exhibition

Performance by Pocket of Lollipops begins at 8. (Art and music are like pb and j, jeans and t-shirts, husband and husband.

Whatever your preference, music and art pretty much always go well together, and sometimes great artists make great music. That is the case with husband and wife team Tony Kapel and Maitejosune Urrechaga make both art and beautiful music together.

Their new incarnation has been given the jaunty name Pocket of Lollipops. The duo has been creating all sorts of interesting material for many years now. Having returned from playing shows in New York, Maryland and Virginia, these two back to impress Miami audiences with their unique sound. The group mixes culture and technology to create intensity of sound. Often, the auditory art is accompanied by visual projections, created mostly by themselves or local artists.- NBC Miami)

Sound Art is a diverse group of art practices that considers wide notions of sound, listening and hearing as its predominant focus. There are often distinct relationships forged between the visual and aural domains of art and perception. Like many genres of contemporary art, sound art is interdisciplinary in nature, or takes on hybrid forms. Sound art often engages with the subjects of acoustics, psychoacoustics, electronics, noise music, audio media and technology (both analog and digital), found or environmental sound, explorations of the human body, sculpture, film or video and an ever-expanding set of subjects that are part of the current discourse of contemporary art.

Exhibiting Artists include: Tina La Porta, Donna Haynes, Cesar Barroso, Raphael Domenech, Mark Paper Scissor, Nicole Martinez, Matthew Falvey, PJ Mills, Amy Letter, John Shirk, Peter Symons, {in boxes}, Misael Soto, Leif Inge, Lauren Jacobson, Cristina Sierra, AdrienneRose Gionta, Joni Younkins-Herzog, Tabitha Pennekamp, Circle2Labs, Catalina Jaramillo, Pocket of Lollipops.
