animalnewyork.com talks with Tristan Perich about the origins of his Microtonal Wall, currently on view at the MoMA “Soundings” exhibition:
ANIMAL’s feature Artist’s Notebook asks artists to show us their original “idea sketch” next to a finished piece. This week, artist Tristan Perich shows us the beginnings and production of Microtonal Wall, a piece currently on view at the MoMA “Soundings.” Made up of 1,500 tiny speakers, Microtonal Wall emits a texture of sound that changes as you walk along the installation.
