Sound Constructions

June 14, 1972

Exhibition Description

“Recent works for experimental sound constructions were performed. The program included Music for Wall and Audience, in which a 3/4” x 8′ x 12 foot wall was attacked from behind by several performers, who eventually carved out the word “wall” using various woodworking tools.” [artist’s statement]
