subterranean space (Ogden, UT), 15’5″ x 12′ x 7’4″ – 2018

CICADA was an artist-run initiative located thirty minutes north of Salt Lake City in Ogden, Utah. Situated below ground level, the space operated as an alternative venue for the physical presentation and digital dissemination of contemporary artworks.

Live* from CICADA was the digital presentation of twenty artists working in sound. For the exhibition, each audio work was processed with an impulse response recording made within the the physical space of CICADA. By treating each piece with a digital simulation of the natural reverberant qualities found within the approximately 1,325 cubic foot gallery space, a hypothetical performance took place where the sonic works made in disparate locations now aurally appeared to have been originally performed within the same subterranean structure. The website for Live* from CICADA served as the recorded document of this conceptual event. Now offline, the website can be experienced via the screen recording above.
