TODD JONES Hymn to the Sun (2011) Digital Collage | Audio: Hand Drum / Percussion / Bass / Micro-Loop - $300
February 3 – March 3, 2012
Opening Reception: February 3, 2012 – 5 PM – 9 PM
Closing Reception: March 3, 2012 – 5 PM – 9 PM
STEREO BALANCE is a visual and aural art concept created by Todd Jones that invites viewers to experience a self-contained world, populated with symbols and images – and activated through sound. The exhibit coincides with the launch of COLLECT ART, an Emerging Artists Series introducing solo exhibitions from fresh new talent to the global art market.
“The structure of the sound emulates four dimensions,” Jones notes. “The content of the lyrics and the images provide an environment within those bounds.”
STEREO BALANCE includes individual pieces linked to original music that can be heard from a media hub fabricated by Jones out of organic and digital materials to enhance the experience.
For Jones, whose grandfather Dr. Harold Alexander Leslie was the Founder of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra in Massachusetts, pairing art with music is a natural endeavor. “Visuals come alive with sound,” he underscores. “If you listen closely, the music will reveal itself to you – wherever you are.”
STEREO BALANCE will run at Yellow Peril Gallery from Friday, 3 February to Saturday, 3 March 2012. Opening night reception will be on Friday, 3 February, from 5PM – 9PM.
TODD JONES is a self-described “Living Creator.” Electronic music, of varying genres, operates as both his fundamental and quintessential medium. Alternative and supporting media include digital and visual art, video and animation, poetry and fiction.
A Vassar College graduate with a concentration in Religion and Music, Jones’ work is strongly experimental, often using deliberately limited techniques to catalyze the integration of radical concepts throughout the sub-and-superstructure of his work.
