Mark Amerika & Chad Mossholder: Micro-Cinematic Essays on the Life and Work of Marcel Duchamp ..



“Micro-Cinematic Essays on the Life and Work of Marcel Duchamp dba Conceptual Parts, Ink” is a collaborative “conceptual art” album featuring the writing and vocals of Mark Amerika and the sound design of electronic music composer Chad Mossholder. The work consists of nineteen experimental tracks that the artists refer to as “close readings” that focus on the work, language, notes, and influence of Marcel Duchamp on contemporary forms of remix practice. An exploration into glitch, microtonality, and the spectral analysis of recorded voices over time, Mossholder and Amerika surgically alter the aesthetic frequency of what is often referred to as “the artist’s voice” and, in the process, challenge us to rethink the interrelationship between critical writing and critical listening.

This work is made possible thanks to a visiting artist residency for both artists at the Centre for Creative Arts at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia.
