Object Transmissions

John Roach
John Roach is a Brooklyn based interdisciplinary artist and educator who explores sound in its broadest context, from the complexity of the city to the subtlety of nature, from noise to silence, from sound as matter to sound as metaphor. His recent work examines the relationship between materials, transformation, energy and sound. Object Transmissions brings together recordings from John Roach and James Rouvelle's Wavefarm residency project "Trailhead" with recent recordings of sounds emitted by matter in a state of change. The work explores the notion of "transmission" through the collision of radio waves and the unexpected utterances of objects.
