April 14th: Low Fidelity (5-8pm)

“Low Fidelity” by Sydney G. speaks to the mind, the memory, and the radio. Unreliable, fragmented, transitory; like the fleeting ringing in your ear it oscillates between now and then, here and there.

For one evening, April 14th from 5-8pm at the Chicago Athletic Association in Madison Ballroom on the 8th floor, the fourth iteration of the sonic installation comes to life. Twenty vintage AM transistor radio photo cubes rotate and transmit signal simultaneously, featuring street photography taken with Polaroid 600 film. Automated tuning forks offer an uneasy disruption to the sonic field, emphasizing their highly unpredictable and often low audio fidelity.
