“Observations indicate that things are always made of smaller things, leading to the unanswerable question: what is the smallest thing? A loop-like model of the universe may avoid this problem."
-S.J. Manetta 1905
Description: A loop-based composition for piano, guitar, custom made sine wave records, & three turntables. Designed to create an environment and be performed for an indefinite duration, it was first performed during my 2016 Open Studios visual art exhibition at The Pacific Felt Factory in San Francisco.
ABOUT THIS PROJECT:  This is the first phase of a project supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission to create three phonograph-like apparatuses that generate sounds from a collection of interchangeable, revolving sculptures based on geological landscapes of California. They will function as both (1) instruments played in a musical performance, and (2) works of public art that invite participation in a lobby, airport, or museum. A collaboration with San Francisco musician Danny Clay, the project will conclude with performances at the Center for New Music during the 2016-17 season. 
Danny Clay is a composer / sound artist / teaching artist / general noise-maker from Ohio, currently based in San Francisco. His work utilizes musical games, open forms, found objects, archival media, toy instruments, classroom collaborations, graphic notation, digital errata, cross-disciplinary research, and the everything-in-between. Recent collaborators include Kronos Quartet, Sarah Cahill, Phyllis Chen, Third Coast Percussion, Friction Quartet.

The workshops place records and turntables in MFA’s main gallery for invited artists and visitors to browse and play. Clay and Fischer will also conduct a “turntable orchestra,” inviting guest artists from various disciplines (music, visual art, performance, creative writing) and students to interact with the soundscape.


Clay and Fischer’s Turntable Drawings and Christine Marie’s Shadows in Stereo are a series of workshops and performances in conjunction with Stories, MFA’s Spring 2018 exhibition. Free and open to the public, these live experiments revisit the 20th century technologies of augmented reality (Marie) and vinyl records (Clay, Fischer) with visitors and invited artists, musicians, writers, and dancers. Artists will be working in the MFA gallery space throughout the Stories exhibition, developing their projects for final performances. Attendees will experience a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process.
