SOUND SPACE (2018) *Re-release w/NEW Cover
Originally Premiered as a Sound and Light Installation
Troy Ramos

“We are merely bolting our lives—gulping down undigested experiences as fast as we can stuff them in—because awareness of our own existence is so superficial, so narrow that nothing seems to us more boring than simple being. If I ask you what you did yesterday, I’m likely to get nothing more than a thin, sketchy outline of the few things that you noticed, and of those only what you thought worth remembering. But suppose you could answer, “It would take me forever to tell you, and I am much too interested in what’s happening now.” -Alan Watts

Often we go into artistic spaces to look for the specific works: the painting, sculpture, etc. As significant as the actual works are, I think there's something at least equally as meaningful beyond that idea, which is: the experience of having an interaction with art. This includes entering into a listening space, of course, to have an interaction with a sound work.

Sound Space is a sound art album about creating experiences which encourage reflection and pause, and it asks the listener to interact with the artwork for a longer period of time- not for the benefit of the work, rather for the potential benefit of the listener. This work is about what the experience does to you and the effect your interaction with it has on your world afterwards. This work encourages sound art as being connected with human experience.

Sound Space premiered as an award-winning sound and light installation at ArtPrize 10 in Grand Rapids. Although the artist’s visual aspect is obviously missing from the experience of listening to the work, it remains a platform for observers to experience themselves. This is one, 30 minute work. The sounds you hear and the experience you have from listening to the work are as much of a work of art as the work itself.

about

Troy Ramos Detroit, Michigan

I create non-directional works with a sense of timelessness. Without the need to be somewhere, the works are free. They are allowed to be themselves, allowed to be anywhere and nowhere.

My works almost have no ending and no beginning. They are part of a loop, just like myself.
