With "FINE SOUND keine medienkunst" Weisses Haus presents soundspaces, sound installations and sound sculptures. Soundproduction from soundabsence, patterns of tones and repetitive notes, sequences and interferences of noises to musical structures. Each object, defining a standalone soundspace that has to enter into a dialog with the architectural situation and has to deal with the presence of other soundspaces. Feb 20th to March 30th, 2013.
21 Balançoires (21 Swings) is a giant collective instrument, a game where together we achieve better things than separately. When in motion, each swing in the series triggers different notes and, when used all together, the swings compose a musical piece in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation.
When Sticky moved into its new digs, we knew we’d need everything in the toolbox to turn the new space into our dream home. Luckily, PACDOOR — friend of the studio and Portland’s premier garage door manufacturer — swooped in, offering to loan us its extensive collection of tools as well as its workshop, where we built our custom desks.
To return the favor, we redesigned PACDOOR’s website. Open the door to their new site here.
After more than 22 years in our NE 8th Avenue studio, Sticky Co. is moving on up — the street, that is.
In mid-July, we settled into our new digs on the second floor at 920 NE Glisan, just a few blocks away from our former studio. With a new supper club opening up next door and lots of fellow thinkers and makers in the building, we’re excited to be in the heart of such a creative neighborhood.
Our resident coding wiz Brandon Stump just spent a few weeks in Sticky’s Amsterdam studio. While he was there, he found the triple-X mark — which is actually a trio of St. Andrew’s crosses from Amsterdam’s coat of arms — nearly everywhere he looked. According to Dutch legend, the three crosses represent the three threats that plagued ancient Amsterdam: flood, fire, and the Black Death. But these days, they’re just a part of the city’s landscape and okay, an incredibly prescient symbol of modern Amsterdam’s reputation.
