Only Everything Lasts Forever

West Hall Gallery, Room 111

March 30, 2010 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

 

Only Everything Lasts Forever is a very long sound composition for MP3.

Two years in the making, it will take significantly longer than the age of the universe to play out. It contains every sound we can distinguish as humans, as dictated by the MP3 specification (ISO/IEC 11172-3).

The first month of the composition will be streamed starting on Sunday March 28th at 7 PM. A link to the stream will be posted at http://kylemcdonald.net/oelf/ an hour before hand.

Two days later on Tuesday, March 30th from 7-9 PM there will be a meetup for offline discussion in West Hall Gallery 111. Light refreshments will be served. Visitors are encouraged to listen to the composition before arriving.
