Sound Art from OZ MP3s

Stephen Vitiello collaborated with Julie Mehretu on a sound art piece for the current Sydney Biennale, which runs through August 27. He’s posted a nearly three-minute excerpt from the installation (MP3). Photos of the exhibit on Vitiello’s website ( show a spiral of upward-facing speaker cones, suspended in a bright white room with at least one wall covered in Mehretu’s drawings. The piece is untitled, and the sound would have been appropriate on the Fourth of July, with its scatter of firecrackers amid quotidian field recordings and light synthetic textures. More info at
