EVIDENCE at The TANK
Evidence is a collaboration between sound artists Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood. Since 2001, they have developed a distinctive language of deeply layered sound, using field recordings of natural and industrial sounds as a primary source of inspiration and sonic material. Their activities range from studio compositions and live improvisations to sound installations, street performances, and collaborations with other musicians, choreographers, and video artists. They have presented their work world-wide, including recent appearances at the Balance-Unbalance Conference in Manizales, Colombia, the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) Conference in Brisbane, Australia, and at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in upstate New York.
