Breaking the Sound Barrier: sonic art 1860-2011

When: Feb. 4-28 2011

According to early 20th-century Italian Futurist painter and composer Luigi Russolo, noise was absent from the world until the Industrial Revolution. Before that, he argues, the only exceptions were short spurts of music and sounds from natural occurrences like waterfalls and storms. For curator Valerie Brodar, Russolo's manifesto highlights the historical and hard-to-believe undercurrent for the art show Breaking the Sound Barrier: sonic art 1860-2011. At the opening from 6 to 9 tonight at GOCA 121 (121 S. Tejon St., and through April 15, 14 artists will display their take on audio art. — Edie Adelstein
