Compositions 1 – 36, IMMA Dublin 2010

Commissioned by The Irish Museum Of Modern Art “Compositions 1 – 36” was created through a collaboration between artists Russell Hart and Karl Burke as a response to the exhibition “What Happens Next Is A Secret”.

Before and during the installation of the exhibition Hart and Burke took a series of recordings throughout the gallery. Using sound specific and file sharing computer software Hart and Burke then processed these recordings into 36 sound compositions.

These recordings were then looped and played back into the gallery through four plywood boxes designed by the artists. The boxes were mounted on wheels to facilitate an intermittent physical and sonic repositioning.
