COOP Gallery is pleased to present Sound Enriched Objects, an exhibition and performance by Justin Boyd. About this work Boyd says, “reclaimed objects existing in the present can project a different future through the vibration of sound.”
This will be Boyd’s first exhibition in Nashville, and the artist will be present at the opening reception. Additionally, at 8pm opening night Justin will present an electro-acoustic performance using a modular synthesizer, solenoid motors and contact microphones. This piece seeks to augment the gallery show through the action of playing everyday objects in a live setting.
