HOURS IN THE DARK
Sometime letter presser, aphorism dealer, and painter Matthew Brannon recorded the last page in a very long novel in this year’s Whitney Biennial Park Avenue Armory annex, using sounds collected via “Words on a page, ink on paper, and hours in the dark.” Brannon then combined the results with actual nighttime recordings made in the Armory’s cavernous confines for his debut CD; tonight, the Whitney hosts a release party. Luke Fischbeck’s Lucky Dragons, whose sound-and-video installation at the Armory was a Whitney highlight, provides the entertainment: His immersive, participatory live shows involve motion and pressure sensors, dancing, and the occasional group hug.
