New York - based composer, visual artist and curator Micah Silver presents a pair of pieces derived from works for other media. Scale is a plaintive work for synthesizer and short wave radio that debuted as a sound installation. Houston/Touch ("for mark rothkowitz"), a piece for tone generators, noise and guitar, accompanies a video that evokes the gritty, intense spirituality of the abstract expressionist's late-period works, specifically the fourteen black paintings in Houston's Rothko Chapel. Although both pieces were originally composed seperately, together they create a balanced whole, fifty minutes of sonic stasis that are truly in motion while remaining still.
