Akron exhibit ‘Sim[plex]cities’ is visual equal of music

"Formation of Light" by Chris Hoot.

If you have ever put in a lot of time in a nightclub or theater that hosts a ton of musical acts, then you will immediately understand how tunes and audio fill the different buildings, styles and voids of the corridor in which it is executed.

Some venues operate improved for diverse kinds of new music. Occasionally performers will hone their music to get the job done superior for individual areas. In this situation, the architectural things of the tunes hall support increase the audio and provide a variety of framework for the sound to exist in. 

Chris Hoot’s “Sim[plex]towns: Digital Constructs, Visible New music, Liquid Landscapes” is a presentation of the artist’s explorations in layering electronic images, graphics and marbling techniques to deliver summary landscapes, cityscapes and soundscapes.

Encouraged by thinker and colorist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s observations that “Music is liquid architecture architecture is frozen audio.” Hoot’s compositions have a kind, condition and movement that is only constrained by the structural configuration of the paper the perform has been produced on as very well as the architectonic elements made use of as element of the visual presentation.
