Stephen Vitiello Listening to Donald Judd
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Sub Rosa
Sculptor Donald Judd could radically alter a bare room's mood just by placing a simple box in the right place. Sound designer Stephen Vitiello explores the audio spaces that Judd's sculptures inhabit in a Texas town by attaching microphones to their surfaces, capturing whatever vibrations pass through. It's an intriguing idea, but the result is an otherwise generic musique concrte mix. There are a few strong moments of broken, droning electricity invading pastoral scapes of birdsong and trains passing through, but the over-indulgence of boiling hums and erratic pacing often makes everything seem hollow and emotionally lost.
