Add this to my venues

Since April, 2001, Diapason, gallery for sound and intermedia has presented a varied program featuring performances and installations. Founded by Michael J. Schumacher and Liz Gerring, it continues the tradition of Studio Five Beekman, offering audiences New York's only venue devoted to sound art.

Diapason focuses on multi-channel sound installations playable by computer. We also program mixed media work, especially works for sound and video. Works with a "sculptural" component are occasionally programmed.

Diapason has two listening environments. the "lounge" is a relaxed setting with seating where people are encouraged to hang out, talk, read, and listen. It contains a 12 channel sound system placed asymmetrically around the space. The "gallery" is a focused listening environment with a high quality 8 channel system. The room is carpeted and people are asked to remove their shoes. This is the main exhibition space for new work.

Exhibits last one month (the gallery is open Saturdays only, 2-8PM) and feature one or two artists. The lounge will also feature works from Diapason's archive, choose-able via computer interface by listeners.
