Ms. Burgon says she thinks of herself more as a musician than a sound artist. Nevertheless her contribution to this very interesting show (probably the best thing we saw on the big off-Armory circuit) is a Sound Chandelier, very homemade with inexpensive piezo disks for speakers, running off what looks like Ableton Live. As in the piece by Alan Rath, the sounds are tinny, but this time instead of orchestral hints, the references are old-school aliens and birdsong. The piece worked very well in the space (like the name says, an old school-house), in a show dominated by inventive and usually rather low-budget art (at least compared to the stuff at the fair).
