From letters inviting artists to participate:
The jam has two trajectories – one (primarily) aural and one (primarily) visual…The premise is that artists are often thrown together within a space by an outsider, usually a curator, and forced to deal with each other. Through that tension often interesting things happen. I asm asking a group of musicians (some of
whom are also artists) to deal with each other in a similar way…to confront what resonances occur (or not) when they collaborate over the course of a few hours. In a way it’s taking what artists always have to do spatially and applying that to a medium that deals with space and time….
Occurring simultaneously with the music are installations in the area outside the performance space…
…So over the course of one evening the (primarily) aural and the (primarily) visual trajectories of the idea intermingle: the sound is audible from the installations outside the building and the art is visible from inside the performance space. – Cindy Bernard, June 1998
