This is Schneller's solo debut with the gallery. Many music fans know of his work with Andrew Bird and may also think; he makes musical instruments." Yes, he does. His horns and other instruments are wonderful instruments but also marvelous sculpture. His work has recently been in sound installations at the Guggenheim and MCA.
This exhibit is also a sound installation with various Speciment crreated speakers, amplifiers and sculptures. At another publication I interviewed Schneller on several occassions about his work creating more traditional musical instruments (although the word "traditional" is awkward to use when writing of Schneller). I always thought of them as art even in that context.
The event will premiere new music by Glenn Kotche featuring eighth blackbird and Kronos Quartet.
