Frieze Sounds 2013 in New York: ACT’s Howie Chen in collaboration

Frieze Sound program at Frieze New York features three specially commissioned audio works this year, including collaboration by Charles Atlas and New Humans (Mika Tajima and Howie Chen). Charles Atlas and New Humans will use electronically altered and fractured vocals to create a poem-like babble of hypnotic phrases and unrelated words. The work articulates the flow of global materials, information and people extracted from distant places made readily accessible and mundane – the soundtrack and backdrop for urban island life.

Frieze New York 2013 takes place May 10–13, 2013 and presents over 180 of the world’s leading galleries. Designed by Brooklyn-based architects SO – IL, Frieze New York is housed in a bespoke temporary structure located in the unique setting of Randall’s Island Park, Manhattan, overlooking the East River.
