by mimeomeme


Featuring works by

Steve Barsotti
Mateo Chavez
Jake Elliott
Vance Galloway
Model 563

Curated by Alex Keller

This four-disc set documents two group shows that happened at Seattle’s late, lamented Polestar Music Gallery. The theme of 2002’s threshold of hearing show was live, minimal, quiet electronic sound works. The pieces on 2003’s threshold of pain are done by the same artists. They are live, electronic, minimal in form, but in contrast very loud. The works vary widely: glitchy computer-generated textures, sparse pure electronic soundscapes, and delicate electro-acoustic pieces are all featured.

This set is uniquely packaged in a clear four-disc jewel box and wrapped in a vellum band.
