Art F City's Paddy Johnson and Michael Anthony Farley reviewed Baltimore's ARTSCAPE Art Fair, here.
In a passage covering the Ortega y Gasset Projects booth they wrote, "For this project sound artist Joshua Bienko invited 16 artists to produce what appear to be genre-specific riffs for his album Always Already Here. This is the kind of project for which I set my expectations low, not just because there are so many bad tracks produced by artists but because it’s so hard to pull off. This, though, succeeds as art and music. Filled with catchy tunes in a range of styles—eighties girl bands, hip hop, banjo music—most of these riffs joke about anything from art to cats to children. Gary Setzer produces a Gary Numan-type track called Generator in which he sings about the emotional life of an artist. “I have anxiety…What is this that I have made? I have not made anything!” he laments against the bubbly notes of his keyboard."
Those of you that know me, will know that the Gary Numan comparison made my day.
