Moses Nornberg x Soundboard

Posted on January 28, 2009 Under Art

Throughout our childhood countless cassette decks and stereo components came and went from our lives. We imagine the majority of them, now somewhat useless, are piled up in some heap at the local landfill. However, since catching a glimpse of Moses Nornberg’s “Soundboard” installation in the latest issue of ReadyMade, we’ve begun to hold out hope that our trusty tape players and transmitters have found a better home. Nornberg‘s super stereophonic masterpiece features 180 nearly ancient stereo’s from the 1950’s to the 1970’s piled high in arresting fashion, proving that while old technologies may fade, art always finds a way to rescue that which is obsolete. “Soundboard” isn’t the only sonic wonder that Nornberg has created. The St. Louis-based artist’s creation is part of a larger collection of works entitled “The Audiophile Series” consisting of extra large, over-the top sound systems comprised of everything from turntables to trucks.
