“Gutenberg Galaxias”: An Installation

15Jul11

 Auckland

I’ve just returned from the University of Auckland. During their hosting of the Australasian Computer Music Conference 2011, Argentinean composer Jose Halac presented his audiovisual work “Universalis”, which is part of a DVD and Installation project with German artist Jana Kluge, titled “Gutenberg Galaxias”. The title of the project refers to Marshal McLuhan’s publication “Gutenberg Galaxy”. The DVD and installation consist of 14 electroacoustic compositions associated with the photograph exhibit, and inspired by the subject. The premiere of the exhibit and installation took place, significantly, at the site of the early Jesuit printing press in the San Alberto Museum in Cordoba, Argentina.
