PHOTOGRAPHY: Barry Goldberg "Sings" at Endless Noise
Published on .
Through Nov. 10, "Songs in the Everyday," an exhibition of the photographs of music producer, composer and engineer Barry Goldberg, is at Santa Monica music house Endless Noise. L.A.-based Goldberg, a frequent Endless Noise collaborator who's worked with the likes of Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins and Snoop Dogg, finds no shortage of sound parallels in his digital photography. As the title of the show, organized by Apostol Contemporary Art, suggests, "it's an exhibition of my evolving interest in synesthesia," says Goldberg. "I use found objects, landscapes and abstract imagery as instruments, inviting viewers to tune into their personal internal soundscapes and soundtracks. Partly because I come from a music background, I find myself living in a song. As I'm walking down the street, for instance, all the sounds of life — construction sounds, traffic, conversations — become harmonious, rhythmic and integrated. I'm interested in changing people's perspectives about what they see and hear in their everyday lives." Adds Endless Noise head of production Dayna Turcotte, "Art inspires art. This exhibit presents a great opportunity not only to creatively stimulate our composers but to also inspire our clients." Some images from the show are seen (and possibly heard) here.
