ODD ARK LA at CHANGING ROOM, Berlin.
ODD ARK•LA is a platform for contemporary art, exhibitions, performance and sound works located in Highland Park, Los Angeles.
For their participation in B-LA, Los Angeles gallery ODD ARK•LA presented a sound-work by visual artists Brian Randolph and Dani Tull to be live broadcasted at CHANGING ROOM located in Berlin by Cashmere Radio
Randolph and Tull performed a single improvised sound-work that is intended for experiential ‘deep listening’. It was our hope that participants in Berlin (listeners) would sit or lay-down with eyes closed to receive the sound as we collaboratively open an intercontinental space for a shared experience that brings harmony and well-being.
Randolph and Tull have performed and collaborated together in a variety of music/sound projects including Jim Shaw’s band D’red D’warf, which they are both members of. They also have extensive experience experimenting with sound, set and setting.
Brian Randolph is an artist and musician, his work has appeared in solo exhibitions at ODD ARK•LA in Los Angeles and Gallery Four and School 33 in Baltimore.

Cashmere Radio is a not-for-profit community experimental radio station based in Lichtenberg, Berlin. The ambition of the station is to preserve and further radio and broadcasting practices by playing with the plasticity and malleability of the medium. We do this by both honouring and challenging its inherent qualities: it is both a physical station open to the public and an online radio; it has regular shows, yet opens itself up to extended and one-off events; it features extended generative music performances and installations at the same time as working within radio’s typical durations. In short, it is an attempt to enhance and celebrate the performative, social and informative power of radio that we believe lies within the form itself.
