Perspectives on Microsound

October 2009

Diapason Gallery presents current perspectives on the idea of "microsound"- a technical term and also a musical genre - in honor of the 10th anniversary of the .microsound.org mailing list (founded by Kim Cascone). 10ms features multi-channel installations, sound objects, performances, lectures, texts, and other media.

Microsound is a term that encompasses explorations of sound on a time scale "shorter than musical notes." It includes and overlaps genres such as glitch music, granular synthesis, lowercase sound, etc.

Participating artists: Brett Ian Balogh, Riccardo Benassi, Kim Cascone, Thanos Chrysakis, Rob Curgenven, Taylor Deupree, Ian Epps, Patrick Franke, Heribert Friedl, Richard Garet, Sarah Karp, Kenneth Kirschner, Thomas Köner, Tomas Korber, Damian Marhulets, Mamoru Okuno, Kamran Sadeghi, Erik Schoster, Phillip Schulze, Bernd Schurer, Keiko Uenishi and Tamara Yadao.
Curated by Daniel Neumann
