Sidetrack:A Show of Sounds, 2003

Curated by Sheila Ie

Sidetrack is a show of 9 sound pieces presented at listening stations. The artists were asked to "sidetrack" themselves from their conventional methods of music to create works based on, but not limited to a formal practice within their professional genres. The participating musicians represent jazz, electronic, spoken word, hip hop, opera, house and avant garde movements. By skeletally utilizing their formal foundations in music, and then deconstructing their individual genres, the participants have composed pieces more suited for the function of sound art then music culture.
