Rabid Hands: Sequence of Waves

This weekend, the collective Rabid Hands took over St. Cecilia's Convent in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, filling it with sound sculptures by more than 40 artists. A few of the pieces were downright frightening, to be honest (and being in a rickety old convent reinforced the horror movie atmosphere). Others, however, like the interactive sound objects by Steven Milton and Terence Caulkins --- bottles, piano pieces, and cymbals attached to transducers and meant to be manipulated by visitors --- were ingenious and captivating, a clear note of intelligence in cacophonous times.

I am so glad it's not just me, and that you got scared at times. I thought I am too old fashioned, but now I feel better ... Anyway, seems like an interesting show and a good use of an old building.

regards, Madeleine

Thanks, Madeleine. We were there in daylight, so we can only imagine how creepy things must have gotten at sundown. Still, it was a lot of fun!
