Microtonal Array

Tristan Perich & Sarah Rara

Tristan Perich and Sarah Rara are two artists who test the boundaries of sound, object and image. In their work as musicians and as visual artists, they investigate the basic structures of their media, highlighting and experimenting with the formal properties and relationships between what we see and what we hear.

Tristan Perich's Microtonal Wall consists of 1,500 small speakers arranged in a grid and mounted onto a 25 foot long panel. Each of these 1,500 speakers emits a single different tone across a four octave range. This sonic sculpture continues Perich's investigations into the structure and foundation of electronic music. Here, each speaker's single 1-bit tone becomes a voice in a sonic mass that shifts and transforms in relationship to the listener's position in the room.

Sarah Rara's A RAY ARRAY is a single channel video and viewing environment that examines forms of visual and aural interference. The video consists of 16 chapters that use everyday objects coupled with simple sound compositions to play with the relationship between seeing and hearing. Rara's playful tableaux and simple juxtapositions maintain a dry, slapstick wit as they explore the perceptual cause and effect relationships between shape and movement.
