Bruce Tovsky:
Multifaceted media artist Bruce Tovsky’s 30 year career cuts a broad swath across disciplines, from his skills as a recording engineer and producer of bands like Liquid Liquid, the seminal 80’s downtown NYC cult band, to his successful career editing and designing award-winning TV commercials, documentaries and music videos, to his evocative video/sound works that are extensions of his visual arts practice. His multimedia works have drawn acclaim in festivals, museums and galleries in the USA, Europe, Japan and around the world. Tovsky collaborated extensively with choreographers during the 80’s and 90’s, scoring and creating sound and video design for works by artists such as Muna Tseng, Cydney Wilkes and Charles Dennis at venues like The Kitchen, PS122, The Joyce Theater, Lincoln Center and elsewhere. Since the early 2000’s he has been associated with Issue Project Room, both as performer and curator, and he has recorded and produced many of the shows he was involved in, most recently recording and producing the amazing collaboration between Genesis P-Orridge and Tony Conrad that was recently released on vinyl by Dias Records and received a glowing review in the UK music magazine The Wire. His 30 year associtaion with Liquid Liquid continues to this day, with his 2009 production of Domino’s UK release of the definitive reissue of their entire output, including rare bonus tracks from his archive.

Richard Garet's video works investigates the possibilities found in today’s technology to create moving image. These works examine process, color, motion, digital glitches, RGB phenomena, afterimage, and the sensory gaps between the eye and the mind. The techniques employed to interact with the work intend to push the boundaries of digital moving image and emphasize the media, digital permutations, and software processing as a pure and fundamental artistic gesture. Additional methods utilized are image scanning, analog and digital processes to treat light and image, film degradation, film decay, and rigorous and repetitive systems of digital corruption.
Garet has collaborated with artists such as: Andy Graydon, Gill Arno, Ben Owen, Gil Sansón, and André Goncalves through the EA collective; and with: Asher, Brendan Murray, Bruce McClure, Bruce Tovsky, Shimpei Takeda, Sawako Kato, Chika Iijima, Wolfgang Von Stürmer, Zimoun, Zach Layton, and Bonnie Jones. His sound compositions have been published on the following labels: And-Oar, Non Visual Objects, Winds Measure Recordings, Unframed Recordings, Con-V, Leerraum, and White_Line Editions. Additionally Garet currently directs the independent media label Contour Editions publishing works that explore the various possibilities of sound and light. Garet also co-curates with Louky Keijsers Koning, the monthly performance event LMAKseries, which integrates film, video, sound art, and media performance into the gallery's mission at LMAK Projects in the L.E.S, NYC.
