On September 22, 2007, the Long Beach artist group, FLOOD, will
present SoundWalk2007, featuring artists from the Southland and the
international scene. This event operates under the concept of a one-
night aural/visual experience as provided by a walking-tour of sound
installations and soundmarks located in various indoor and outdoor
spaces situated throughout the East Village Arts District in Downtown
Long Beach. The artworks will combine in multiple ways a wide range
of visual, performative and audio components. There will be
sculptures, environments, installations and performances.
SoundWalk is an annual art event produced by the Long Beach artist
group, FLOOD, as a variation of the "ArtWalk" events that take place
every 2nd Saturday in the Arts District of Long Beach. Artists and
viewers alike passionately embraced the inaugural event, SoundWalk
2004, with thirty artists participating and nearly a thousand
visitors joining together for the evening walking-tour. Many
visitors, who had no prior encounter with sound-art, were
overwhelmingly enthusiastic in their responses.
Now in our fourth year, we continue to explore this unique
environmental experience with new and returning artists participating
in the transformation of our downtown Long Beach space. Outdoor
soundmarks add a layer to and perform in concert with sounds of the
city, thus intermingling with and altering the local soundscape.
Unlikely combinations of the ordinary and the extraordinary enter
into chance encounters with the attending public. Galleries and
stores within the Arts District will accommodate a variety of indoor
installations, creating uncommon intersections of art and commerce.
This evening dedicated to sound is not only an exciting moment of
transformed perception but a chance to rethink our sensory engagement
with the spaces within which we function.
A number of works will be on display for an extended period
throughout the month of September at various indoor locations. Once
again, we wish to surprise, puzzle, enchant as well as engage those
who intentionally and unintentionally participate in SoundWalk 2007.
This event is free to the public and is being sponsored in part by
the Downtown Long Beach Business Associates (DLBA), The Arts Council
for Long Beach, The East Village Association (EVA) and The City of
Long Beach. More information about FLOOD and the artists is
available upon request.
The artist group, FLOOD has been working on installation projects for
the last four years. FLOOD is interested in testing the limits of
artistic expression through collaboration and experimentation within
a variety of artistic genres. Current members of FLOOD are Kamran
Assadi, Shea M Gauer, Frauke von der Horst, Scott A Peterson, Shelley
RuggThorp and Marco Schindelmann.
