Sound System

“It’s very analog,” says Audra Wolowiec of “Sound & Text,” her performance at Counterpath Press. The Brooklyn-based installation artist is referring to her use of an old-fashioned projector, one that she will carry around the gallery as it clicks away, loudly sharing images. Utilizing and responding to the space where her art and performances happen, Wolowiec says she’s never sure how the pieces will materialize until she gets to a venue.

The presentation is a companion to “Warm-Up,” a piece that includes speakers that respond to vibration. The sounds coming from the speakers are recordings the artist has made of actors and singers warming up their voices prior to a performance. “Warm-Up” comes from Wolowiec’s fascination with bodily communication that doesn’t necessarily relate to spoken language. “I’m interested in communication and language and the absence of language — like parts of speech that communicate but don’t use words,” she says.

“Sound & Text” opens tonight at 7 p.m. at Counterpath Press, 613 22nd Street. Wolowiec will perform along with local poet and multimedia artist Aaron Angello. The event is free; for more information, visit counterpathpress.org.
