The Catchy Acoustics of Installation Artist Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon

Why We Recommend it

Los Angeles – based artist captures the spirit of the recording studio, playing with its sonic infrastructure to make us explore how pop music is made.


In a first for the artist, Gordon has composed a pop song in Los Angeles, in collaboration with the following musicians: MNDR, Mess Kid, Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Jonathan Mandabach. This song is diffused throughout Empty Gallery’s two floors by a multi-channel speaker system.

This soundscape is further sculpted and filtered through Gordon’s physical interventions in the gallery, which take the form of a maze of sound-absorbing pneumatic structures on the first floor and a series of hybrid sound blanket-tapestries on the lower floor.
