“Closer Before We Touch” is an animatronic sound sculpture exploring the interplay between physical and simulated spatialization. Consisting of a motor driven set of speakers thrusting in and out towards the storefront gallery window, the work alternates between waves of noise and difference tones: beating, panning, and clustering around each other. The continuous movement of sound – at once both dizzying and mesmerizing – creates a disorienting space where sonic materiality flows in and out of ambiguity and the perception of depth exists in an intangible position between the real and the simulated.

Doron Sadja is an American artist, composer, and curator whose work explores modes of perception and the experience of sound, light, and space.  Working primarily with multichannel spatialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, extreme frequencies, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments, Sadja creates post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Although each of Sadja’s works are striking in their singular and focused approach, his output is diverse: spanning everything from immersive multichannel sound pieces to sexually provacative performance / installation works, and stroboscopic smoke, mirror, laser, and projection shows. Doron has published music on 12k, ATAK, and Shinkoyo records, and has performed/exhibited at PS1 MoMa, Miami MOCA, D’amelio Terras Gallery, Cleveland Museum of Art, Issue Project Room, and Roulette amongst others. Sadja co-founded Shinkoyo Records and the West Nile performing arts venue in Brooklyn (RIP), and has curated various new music/sound festivals around NYC, including the multichannel SOUNDCORRIDORS Festival, Easy Not Easy, John Cage Musicircus, and more
