Variable Resistance

Ten Hours of Sound from Australia

September 08-September 17, 2002

The third in a series of "listening room" exhibitions at SFMOMA, Variable Resistance presents a cross section of contemporary trends in Australian sound art and experimental music. The listening room component of the exhibition comprises ten hours of thematically organized sound. A special evening of live performances features four of Australia's leading electronic sound artists, while a Web component, presented as part of the ongoing CrossFade project, offers a multilayered iteration of the project with essays and related sound files.
