Sound Artist Janek Schaefer at the Bluecoat

Sound Artist, musician and composer Janek Schaefer presents his new mixed media installation ‘National Portrait [the last transmission]’, a sound portrait of Britain on 2nd Dec 2009- the day the five analogue TV signals are turned off in Liverpool.

Running at the Bluecoat Gallery in Liverpool until 17th January, Schaefer’s exhibit offers a chance to experience a number of important works from his 20-year career. From the Bluecoat exhibit page…

Lauded by his critics and contemporaries, Schaefer’s solo exhibition appears at a critical point in his career as he establishes gallery-based practice, alongside a major new public art commission, acclaimed live performances, and numerous albums. A new series of sound sculptures, Black Magic, will be shown for the first time in his career.

This should be well worth a look, so please go and experience it whilst you have the chance!
