“by the time” Commissioned for London ICA “Soundworks”

19 June 2012 – 16 September 2012

“by the time” by Bonnie Jones (electronics, voice, field recordings)

London Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Mall, London SW1Y 5AH

As part of our season on sound, this exhibition presents one hundred new sound commissions produced by artists from all over the world. Selected by our curators and art institutions worldwide, the artists have been invited to submit a sound file, taking its stimulus from the themes evoked in Bruce Nauman’s Days, which will be presented in the lower gallery during the exhibition.

Soundworks embraces the ephemeral nature of sound, creating an online platform that doubles as a virtual exhibition space. The online presentation aims to make the works internationally accessible, a site to explore the genre as a medium which is simultaneously inclusive, interactive, and subversive.The exhibition includes a wide range of audible approaches by artists who have been working with the medium for many years, as well as artists taking their first venture into the sonic arts.

John Cage Variations VII: Tokyo, Japan

January 29th, 30th, Naya Collective, Tokyo Japan
John Cage’s Variations VII

I was asked by Adachi Tomomi to participate in John Cage’s Variations VII via audio streaming from Baltimore, MD through USTREAM. The musicians at the concert were accessing and “playing” over 30 streams from around the world.

A commercial video made for the production. It was broadcast on a big TV screen in the Shibuya Crossing. The owner of an advertising agency provided it for a low cost because he is a fan of John Cage!
