Alex Tyrrell is a composer and artist who seeks to eschew the norms of musical performance and production by developing interactive and integrated mixed-media presentations for his compositions. "10 Empty Boxes" is his first public exhibition, presenting his themes of nonlinear musical composition and spatial experimentation in the form of a surround-sound audio installation.
The installation comprises a four-channel sound environment with ten boxes placed on a table at the centre: visitors to the gallery are invited to interact with the audio installation by opening and closing any combination of boxes, shaping the composition into a unique form. In this capacity, the installation and its components take on a metaphorical and contemplative quality for each visitor as they construct and deconstruct the seemingly limitless arrangement.
