GX Jupitter-Larsen

Oct 1 '14

The first time The Grinding Gig was performed outside of Europe was Dec 1992 in New York, in a dark warehouse basement full of junk. The main source of lighting was the blank static from a TV set hung just above the performers. During the whole 25 minutes, a petrol-like fragrance poured out from the grinder’s motor. As the microphone was slowly pushed into the grinding wheel, it turned into a fine black powder which filled the air.  Just two weeks later, with a screwdriver in hand, GX Jupitter-Larsen quietly removed 100 screws from the Coney Island Boardwalk. Staged during most of the day, this performance was another variation of Building Empty Holes.

Nov 27, 1995 In Toulouse France, one performer sat on the floor and rubbed a calculator against sandpaper. Another stood behind, using an electric drill mounted with a sanding wheel to wear away at the car tire the first had over his shoulder. Contact-mics were on both the calculator and the drill. Very noisy.

New York June 1995:  A young girl in a gown was wearing an auto tire over their shoulder like a sash. Using an electric drill mounted with a sanding wheel, GX Jupitter-Larsen was grinding away at this tire for 30 minutes. A third performer was processing the resulting sounds. The smell of rubber filled the small club.  Polite applause followed.

If sound could have a psychical weight, it would be measured in units of noise. - http://youtu.be/9VPt1INg8aE
