About

Ensemble is a group exhibition of sound art curated by artist and musician Christian Marclay. Likening his approach to that of a composer rather than a curator, Marclay chose sculpture and installations based on their sound quality and sonic compatibility. An ambient sound environment resulted, with iconic works by 27 artists such as Harry Bertoia, Yoko Ono and Michelangelo Pistoletto, mixed in with newer pieces. This publication includes a CD featuring a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of artist/musicians, including Shelly Hirsch, Alison Knowles, Alan Licht, Marina Rosenfeld and Mika Tajima “playing” the show. Edited by Christian Marclay. Introduction by Claudia Gould. Sound mix by Aaron Igler. Audio CD included.
