Triple Canopy – Proyecto DATA by Julia Weist & Nestor Siré

“In Cuba, unlike in nearly every other country, digital media circulates through in-person transfers more often than through networked technologies. For roughly a decade, a majority of Cubans have accessed movies, TV shows, music, publications, and advertisements through El Paquete Semanal (the Weekly Package): a system for sharing hard drives full of files that are copied and distributed by hand. In a world where transnational internet behemoths leverage personal data to influence our viewing, spending, socializing, and voting, Cuba shows us an exceptional and extraordinary alternative.”

Triple Canopy – A Celebration of Gregg Bordowitz

Next month, Triple Canopy is premiering Answers with Questions, a three-episode advice show hosted by Gregg Bordowitz with Jasmine Nyende, Joy Ladin, and Morgan Bassichis, plus musical guests Vivien Goldman, Kendall Thomas, and The Illustrious Pearl.

Send Bordowitz your questions, whether existential or mundane, political or personal, ribald or somber, by emailing [email protected] or calling 201-467-8592.

Answers with Questions follows from Some Styles of Masculinity, an ongoing series of performances (originally commissioned by the New Museum in 2018) in which Bordowitz probes the personas of the rock star, rabbi, and comedian, which are fundamental to his formation as an artist and activist. The series has been included in “Gregg Bordowitz: I Wanna Be Well,” a retrospective organized in 2019 by the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College, and subsequently presented at The Art Institute of Chicago; the exhibition will open at MoMA PS1 in the spring of 2021.

Triple Canopy – Table of Visions by Tashi Wada with Alexander Provan

What is the sound of a piano replicating the energy, mannerisms, and intent of a pianist? What is the difference between a sensitive pianist balancing the interwoven melodies of a fugue, or channeling the melancholia of a concerto, and a computerized piano outputting the same techniques and emotions? The Los Angeles-based composer Tashi Wada takes up these questions in Table of Visions, a composition for the Steinway Spirio, a “high-resolution player piano” designed to record and replay live performances. Listen to a sketch from the composition and read an accompanying essay by TC editor Alexander Provan on the illusion of liveness and technologies that capture the “soulfulness” of performances.

Triple Canopy – Crying Pine Tree by Goldin+Senneby & Katie Kitamura with Alexander Provan

What do genetically modified pine trees have to do with the future of biological life on earth—and with writing fiction? We’ve just published documentation from Crying Pine Tree, a performance in which Triple Canopy’s editor, Alexander Provan, unpacked and planted four genetically modified pines while the author Katie Kitamura read the prologue to a novel that she’s writing about the trees. (An experimental geneticist in Florida modified the pines so as to overdrive their production of sap, which contains a chemical compound that can be converted into biofuel.)

The pines are components of a multifaceted work in progress by the artist duo Goldin+Senneby, who are concerned with biography in the most literal sense: life writing.
How does the “life writing” that occurs in laboratories—the alteration of genetic code to yield organisms for study or sale, to cure illnesses or save species—relate to the life writing that occurs in memoir, fiction, and poetry?

A story of a genetically modified pine, of life under threat and subject to enhancement (or even salvation) through engineering.

Triple Canopy – Second Rate by Jonathan Sterne & Mara Mills

It can’t be taken for granted that we all share the same sense of time. Since the advent of mechanical playback technologies in the early twentieth century, blind scientists, experimental musicians, and radio engineers have sought to manipulate the speed of sound to different ends. As Jonathan Sterne and Mara Mills observe in “Second Rate,” their new essay for TC, experimental musicians are often credited as the progenitors of time compression—the speeding up or slowing down of recorded sound—while the contributions of obscure engineers and blind readers are overlooked. In chronicling the experiments of avant-garde composers (who harbored “managerialist fantasies of control” over sound) along with the technological efforts of blind people (who sought to manipulate playback speeds to learn and communicate as they wished), Sterne and Mills ask what counts as a radical use of technology.

A history of time stretching, from avant-garde composers with fantasies of control to blind people who sought to read at their own speed.

Triple Canopy – LITTLE GIRLS by Nikita Gale

“To me, ‘River Deep—Mountain High’ represents a fantasy of defying musical genres, which were (and still are) largely defined by race and gender. The song was a flop in part because of the ways in which these categories are troubled through the production. What American gatekeepers of radio perceived in the song was not a triumphant integration of R&B and pop but rather sonic miscegenation. … The song captures the sound of being together—or of being packed together, forced together.”

Read “LITTLE GIRLS” a multimedia essay by the artist Nikita Gale on Tina Turner’s “River Deep—Mountain High,” sonic segregation, the power of the Top 40, and the prospect of being heard without being controlled.

As part of Triple Canopy’s contribution to “Raid the Icebox Now,” an exhibition at the RISD Museum (which is currently closed to the public), we created a digital publication that revises the lavish 1906 catalogue for Pendleton House, which was built to house Charles Pendleton’s vast collection of American furnishings, imported vases and candelabras, and other such treasures and follies.

The text of the catalogue might seem to be an anodyne description of styles and techniques, but this language is a manifestation of the rhetoric around taste, distinction, and progress that has fueled the formation of American identity and abetted the exercise of American power since the late nineteenth century. Our publication, “To Make New Bodies Out of Old Shapes,” dissects and gradually cannibalizes the catalogue: the pages are increasingly augmented by nationalistic speeches, nostalgic stories, messianic sermons, and other fictions and original sources that reflect this underlying agenda. (The publication also features imagery from the three-channel video installation we created for the exhibition.)

Triple Canopy – The Black Catatonic Scream by Harmony Holiday

“In this age of excess speech and scarce conversation, of cycles of collective and individual trauma so surveilled as to nearly be glamorized, we’re all keeping secrets, withholding words, courting quietness, but we resist the poetry in that denial, the potential for the enjambment of joy and pain, suffering and redemption, awareness and oblivion.” Read Harmony Holiday's essay on the silencing of Black voices and the longing for emancipation in songs and screams.

“Now we have to learn to listen to the speechless ruins.” A meditation on Black silence.

Triple Canopy – A Cinder Block Falling on Concrete by Lawrence Abu Hamdan

In “A Cinder Block Falling on Concrete,” the artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan shares sounds and stories from Earwitness Inventory: a personal library of sound effects related to the testimony of earwitnesses in criminal investigations. Abu Hamdan considers how people remember (or misremember) sounds—gunshots, punches, squeaky prison doors—as well as the difficulty of describing such memories when precision is paramount, during interviews and courtroom hearings.

“A Cinder Block Falling on Concrete” consists of brief essays on many of the objects that make up Abu Hamdan’s sound library, which is derived from interviews the artist has conducted with earwitnesses as part of his work as a “private ear” on investigations with Forensic Architecture (and Amnesty International), as well as transcripts from trials across the globe. https://www.canopycanopycanopy.com/issues/26/contents/a-cinder-block-falling-on-concrete

“It didn’t sound like a punch.” A library of sound effects derived from the testimony of earwitnesses in criminal investigations, and notes on the “acoustic unconscious.”

Triple Canopy – Listening by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge

“Inner space and world give rise to each other, photon and wave; a person alone is in a context.

It’s how a painting, real in itself, also reveals reality by connecting a blue scarf with a woman’s blue eyes, for example.”

Read “Listening,” the poet Mei-mei Berssenbrugge’s contribution to Two Ears and One Mouth, our issue devoted to the entanglement of speaking and listening. The poem is included in Berssenbrugge’s new collection, A Treatise on Stars, which was published earlier this year by New Directions.

Triple Canopy – Stereomodernism by DeForrest Brown, Jr.

Prompted by the poet Tsitsi Ella Jaji’s concept of “dubbing in stereo for solidarity,” “Stereomodernism,” DeForrest Brown, Jr.’s mix for Triple Canopy, reinstates techno’s original framing as embodied aural history from a Black theoretical perspective. In Brown, Jr.’s words, the mix “celebrates the sublimity of Detroit techno and its position in African American culture and history.”

Brown, Jr. created the mix in response to Rainald Goetz’s novel Rave, an ecstatic account of the 1990s German techno scene, now available in English for the first time from Fitzcarraldo Editions and excerpted in Two Ears and One Mouth, our issue devoted to speaking and listening.

A mix that presents techno as an embodied aural history of Black life in America (and not as psychedelic delirium). With artwork by Abdul Qadim Haqq.
