This commission has been postponed by the city. The chapel is not fire code compliant.
Opening day still includes many artists who have been commissioned to present work. Please join us!
großer Lauscher has been commissioned for installation, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The piece will be installed on the alter, of the chapel, within Dorothea Dix park. The land of this park is rich with history. More information on the park and its future vision is available via the Dorothea Dix Park Legacy Report.
This project is made possible by the generous corporate sponsorship of Genelec.
I will be in residency at Spatial Sound Institute, in June of 2018, working on the 4DSOUND engine.
During the residency I will be spatializing and mastering the 24-hour cycle of sound that is one ingredient to the project: ode to Heisenberg + De Maria. The residency will culminate in a 24-hour listening session, where participants are invited to stay as little and as long as like, as well as sleep in the dedicated sound space.
Below is an image from the 24-hour listening session. Around 15 hours into the piece, I found out a yoga workshop was running in the building. I invited the class in to practice, during a 75-minute massive rainstorm, that takes place around 3pm.
This residency was made possible by a grant provided by the Spatial Sound institute.
Opening reception: Saturday July 22, 6-9pm
Closing reception: Sunday August 27, 6-9pm

Additional support has been provided by an Ella Foundation Pratt Emerging Artists Grant, From the Durham Arts Council, with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resource + a grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
The Foundation for Contemporary Arts has awarded großer Lauscher with an emergency grant to purchase equipment for exhibition. The organization has a rich history in its formation and through the dedication of artists supporting artists:
"In 1962 Jasper Johns, John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, and other painters and sculptors came together to help Merce Cunningham and his dance company finance a proposed season on Broadway by arranging for a sale of their artworks. Their fund-raising efforts were so successful that there was money to spare, and when they asked Cunningham what he thought they should do with it, he replied, “We're all in the same boat--why don't you give it to other performing artists?""
