Tom Kotik

The aesthetics of this piece are nothing to be desired but content is more important than superficial looks. The piece is speakers mounted on a music stand with low frequency sound playing. What I really liked about this piece was sound becoming tactile and more physical. I really enjoy work that attempts to make music more physical. I also enjoy the artist’s method of making sound visual as opposed to visual art becoming audible.
