[New release from Corpora Aliena: Dale Pattenden / Bernhard Living ‘Trip Hammer + Remix’]

[This project is inspired by the “Trip Hammer” sculpture by Richard Serra (1988), and based on the “The Sound of Minimalism, Richard Serra” by Dale Pattenden
“The Sound of Minimalism, Listening to Richard Serra” This work is a direct sound recording capturing the deep, harmonious vibrations – aided with a tuning fork and a high sensitive microphone - of Richard Serra’s “Trip Hammer, 1988.” Two sheets of steel are delicately balanced. One stands upright, 2.6 m high and 1.3 m deep, and balances on an edge 5 cm wide. The other rests horizontally on this thin edge, with its only other means of support provided by its minimum contact with the wall. Although there are connotations relating to this piece in terms of its physical tension and gravitational force, I am only interested in showing the nature of its sculptural tendencies and questioning sculptural presentation. “It isn’t necessary for a work to have a lot of things to look at, to compare, analyse one by one, or to contemplate. The thing as a whole, its qualities as a whole, is what is interesting.” (Donald Judd, In Suzi Gablik) This work is the nature of Minimalism, condensed and digitally formatted into an audible mode of presentation. I am not representing Minimalism through sound; I am only providing the sound of Minimalism. This work is therefore, a direct response to Minimalism through using Richard Serra, who is and always was a proclaimed Minimalist. (Dale Pattenden)]
