(This is a very beautiful installation, which will be up the entire 
month of March -- but don't wait until the last minute to go!)


from Steve Peters:

A bit of self-promotion (please forward to friends in the Portland area):

Alchemy, an installation by Steve Peters & Christine Wallers, runs March 
1-30 at the Portland Art Center: 
http://www.portlandart.org/newsite/07_03_MG

Opening reception: Thursday March 1, 6 to 10 PM
Artist talk: Saturday March 3 at 2 PM.

Originally created for an old adobe chapel in New Mexico, this piece was 
presented last year at CoCA in Seattle as part of the In Resonance show 
at Bumbershoot. It consists of a series of large brass bowls suspended 
from the ceiling, with sound projected through the bowls themselves. 
Whispering voices are electronically transformed as they travel from 
bowl to bowl through the space.

More info on the piece, including photos and sound sample, at

Hope you can make it.

Steve
