The Sherman-Weyant Anarchist Implosion
1 March 2013
FREE for all
The Sherman-Weyant Anarchist Implosion have created a site-specific ambient audio work that is inspired and provoked by Peter Young’s paintings while also explicitly devised to acoustically activate the MOCA Great Hall’s unique properties. Echoing and celebrating Young’s career of painterly process-based abstraction, The Sherman-Weyant Anarchist Implosion will present a multi-threaded performative soundscape that is both algorithmic and improvisational.

Glenn Weyant is a founding member and innovator of the early 21st Century Border Wall Deconstructionist Movement. Using a cello bow and implements of mass percussion to “play” the Sonoran Desert’s border walls, militarized infrastructure and assorted ephemera, both natural and human, Weyant’s internationally recognized work has been featured in films, books, photographs and audio recordings. In 2012 Weyant’s performance of John Cage’s 4″33 upon the Nogales Wall was included in the New York Public Library/John Cage Trust retrospective: John Cage unbound A Living Archive.
