Adán De La Garza | The Politics of Frequency


Usurping the very power of a sound requires a lot of thought, time, and endurance. Art doesn’t need to be pleasant and when it reflects the human state it typically isn’t. Utilizing an array of different audio technology with origins from the military-industrial complex The Politics of Frequency further explores the sonic terrain where noise music and military influenced sonic warfare cross over one another. Diving deeper into the notion of noise music and deliberately experiencing noise as a preparatory measure to understand the impending infliction of sonic warfare onto citizens, the hope is to develop a broader understanding of the weaponizing of sound and become more resilient to sonic dominance and manipulation as a population.

The Politics of Frequency will be exhibited for one weekend only. 

Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, July 27th and a special outdoor screening of Andrew Busti's films.
