L+L at home
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Look + Listen Festival, which was to take place on April 23, 25 and May 2, 2020, was cancelled. We look forward to working with the artists again when the time is right. In the meantime, stay tuned for our offerings of music and art which uphold the Festival’s intimate, and mindbending nature. And we encourage you to visit our Soundcloud page to listen to past concerts.
Turntable Drawing No. 36:
An Illustrated Audio Voyage
Look + Listen Festival is pleased to present this special audiovisual project by printmaker Jon Fischer and composer Danny Clay. Turntable Drawing No. 36 consists of a new twenty-five minute audio work presented alongside a large format illustrated guide. Mailed directly to the audience, this tactile project continues Look + Listen’s mission to provide unique interactions between music and visual spaces free of charge, following the cancellation of our 2020 festival due to the global pandemic.
Just weeks before the coronavirus emerged, printmaker Jon Fischer made a voyage to the Middle East with some questions about a Hebrew word, “haMakom,” that he’d heard has no direct translation into English. He traveled with recording equipment and a mission to collect material for a collaboration with composer Danny Clay. The pair used the resulting interviews, field recordings and sounds to create a meditation on the shifting concept of place.
Look + Listen invites you to bring this work into your place as we remain physically distant, but emotionally connected.

TURNTABLE DRAWINGS is an ongoing collaboration between composer Danny Clay and printmaker Jon Fischer based on a growing series of hand-molded, playable records. Since 2016, the project has been presented in conjunction with over twenty guest artists in many interdisciplinary forms including immersive installations, scored musical compositions, visual art exhibitions, and interactive workshops. Recent exhibits were mounted at the de Young Museum, Gray Area, the Center for New Music, Kala Art Institute and the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts. Using loops as the raw material for collaboration and creation, the project explores the connections between physical imprints, music, and beauty.
