VenVoisey A sound kind of genius By Rosalyn Stevenson Coming Jan. 25 Ven Voisey will head an event: “The Music of Sound” at the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art, 409 E College Blvd. in Roswell. People are invited to come and bring bottles, pieces of metal, pots, pans, paper, plastic or any other material that can make a sound. Voisey said, “We will make sounds using these objects and they’ll be digitally recorded. I have four sets of ideas that I hope to turn into compositions: body; percussion; drone tones; and contact microphone experiments.” Voisey has recently been an artist in residence of the Anderson Museum’s Artist In Residence Program where he created the installation “Unfinished Animal.” He said that the “Music of Sound” event came about as an idea through talks with Nancy Fleming and Sue Wink of the Anderson Museum. Voisey has a background in music and an interest in experimental music that started when he was 11 years old and started recording sounds and layering them into new

Quotes about sound By Rosalyn Stevenson Quotes from

“Have you ever heard a blindfolded octopus unwrap a cellophane-covered bathtub?” — Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth (Professor emeritus author of acclaimed children’s books, including The Dot and the Line, made into an Academy Award-winning animated film.) “The world’s continual breathing is what we hear and call silence.” — Clarice Lispector, The Passion According to G.H. (Brazilian author) “My body is an ugly masterpiece that lives off the beauty of sound.” — Chad Sugg (American poet) “Reality is a sound, you have to tune in to it -- not just keep yelling.” — Anne Carson, Autobiography of Red (Canadian professor and author) “One person’s data is another person’s noise.” — K.C. Cole (writes about physics and mathematics) “His voice was cloves and nightingales, it took us to spice markets in the Celebs, we drifted with him on a houseboat beyond the Coral Sea. We were like cobras following a reed flute.” — Janet Fitch, White Oleander (American author)

recordings. He says that he has been influenced by John Cage, famed American experimental music artist; Luigi Rosello, Italian Futurist who created “noise orchestras” in the 1920s famous for incorporating ambient sound such as trains and city sounds into his compositions; “Music Concrete” a French experimental soundart form; and Terry Riley and Steve Reich, known for circular rhythmic music and a series called “phases.” Voisey said that, “By stepping away from control, it’s possible to enter certain realms where traditional music does not go.” Voisey said that he views communication through this experimental sound art as “a non-verbal visceral realm of experience coming from intelligent ideas.” In the 1990s Voisey made his own CDs under the label “Throat” and sold them at music stores Amoeba Records

and Rasputten in San Francisco and to other musicians interested in experimental music and sound. One of the now wellknown experimental artists his label released is “Sawako.” He said that though this period was “a small blip” for him and that he wanted to down play it that his self-made CDs did receive good reviews in “Vital Weekly” an online listing of experimental music. He went on to say that some European artists were especially supportive and named Roel Meslkop and Frans Deward, both of the Netherlands as two well-known sound experimentalists who were especially supportive. When asked where he gets his ideas Voisey replied, “fortunately my ideas tend to lead from one to the next and one project unfolds into the next. I experience more ideas than I have time to make. I am inspired by all

kinds of phenomena for example rain falling off of leaves was the inspiration for my project titled: “Voice Paper” at the Adams Theater, in Adams, Mass.” On his website he describes the project as: “Through motion and sound, paper becomes a communication device of not only the past, but the present and the yetto-be written.” The elaborate project involved a room sized circular device with mechanisms arranged so that when viewers walk by them they are triggered to tap pieces of hanging paper thus creating sound. ( Voisey currently has a band called: Tiros Won! ( whose LP will be played during a light and sound installation environment event titled “Dust and Light” that Voisey will present at the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium at the Roswell Museum and Art Center, Feb. 15.

Forgotten places of the past By Janie Smith Hidden in the terrain of Lincoln County are places lost to history. While some of these historical places are easily reached, some require hiking through brush, rocks and up steep grades. These places range from campsites of the Ancient Mogollon Indians to more recent structures built by the early settlers of Lincoln County, to natural sites signiďŹ cant in the development of the county. During the years before 1460, the Mogollon Indians mined turquoise in the Jicarilla Mountains. Turquoise was used not only as ornaments, but as a medium for exchange and thus the Ancient Ones journeyed to the Jicarillas. These people came from the southwest and their path from the Tularosa Basin led east toward what is now White Oaks. Just before the trail wound into a valley between two mountain ranges they found the perfect camp site. To the south not too far from the trail were jagged cliffs. Once into these cliffs the Mogollons had a perfect view of the surrounding landscape. It was a good place to view any hostile enemies approaching, like the Mescalero Apache. One spot was protected naturally from the elements, with a cliff towering above and over a rock shelf. At the base of this shelf was a large level spot. That this was indeed a camp site is attested to by the Petroglyphs on the cliff walls. It is speculated that the markings on the cliff walls are a map designating where the water sources were. There are also circular indentations on the rock where the Mogollon’s ground their grain. To stand in this place, with only the sound of the wind, and to look across the landscape is to see what ancient eyes saw centuries ago. The scenery is unchanged except for the once dirt trail is now a paved road. This site has not been touched for centuries and remains with only traces of the lives that camped there. It is a hidden treasure. Up against Carrizo Mountain is a place once prominent in the life of the surrounding towns. This was the power plant of White Oaks that came into existence with the gold rush boom in the 1890s. This power plant supplied the

town of White Oaks with electricity and later Carrizozo and Nogal as well. It was a steam generated power plant. The water was held in a huge cistern and was piped in from springs in Carrizo Mountain. The water was also piped into White Oaks for use in the mines. A building, made from bricks hauled in from Ancho, was erected to hold the boiler. Fed by coal which was mined nearby, the water in the boiler was heated until it became steam. This steam turned a turbine which produced electricity. A man was stationed inside the brick building to make sure that the automatic stoker did not get the pressure too high which would cause the boiler to explode. Unfortunately one fateful night in 1946 the man assigned to this task fell asleep. The pressure built to the explosion stage. There was a powerful blast as the entire brick building blew apart, instantly killing the sleeping caretaker. There were no plans to rebuild the power plant as coal had gotten too expensive to mine. This was the demise of the White Oaks Power Plant which ended indeed not with a whimper, but with a bang. Today the only witness to the power plant site is the occasional elk that wanders down the trail that was once a road. The building that housed the boiler is a heap of bricks, but the huge concrete cistern below the site of the brick building is still intact. The house where the plant foreman lived still stands, but it is gutted inside. Huge pipes that once carried water stick abruptly out of the ground. On top of the hill where the coal was pulverized are planks and pieces of iron. Surrounded by mountains this place that was once a vibrant part of the adjacent communities is now a hidden reminder of the past. Another reminder of the glory days of the White Oaks gold rush is the Powder House down White Oaks Canyon. This was the building where the miners stored their dynamite. It was built with double heavy stone walls and a steel door so that if the dynamite accidentally exploded the blast would be contained inside the building. The fuses and caps were stored behind the building. Today the Powder Continued on next page

House is largely intact, but the stones on the rear wall need repair. The site for the Powder House was most likely chosen because up behind the Powder House between two steep cliffs was one of the springs that supplied White Oaks with water. An iron pipe ran from the spring down to the road and joined up with the pipe from the power plant to bring water to the mines at White Oaks. Today the spring can be found if you care to climb up the steep slope through rocks and brush. The way to the spring is clear, as there are cattails leading the way and white mineral deposits on the sides of the banks. To see cattails in the high desert mountains is indeed a strange sight. Today a modern PVC Pipe leads down from the spring to beside the

Powder House where there is a spigot to get water. There are no traces of the original iron pipes from the spring but pieces can still be seen in segments along the canyon road. Lost up in the crevice between two cliffs is another hidden place of history. Our predecessors have left us only faint

and fragmented traces of their existence. These forgotten places are a reminder that while history may be largely forgotten, it is never entirely lost, but remains as a reminder of the past. While it may be said that nothing lasts forever, yet the element of forever is in these places.

The grooviest people in all of Ruidoso enjoyed some Business After Hours fun at the Spencer Theater on Jan. 16. The Flower Power party, which gave a nod to the rock musical “HAIR” appearing at the hall in early March, featured various contests and a whole lot of wine and munchies. The top prize winner of the night was Ruidoso teacher Fheli Dayangas (pictured at right), who won the hoola hoop-off against Heather Hixon and Debbie Haines-Nix. Dayangas kept the hoop twirling around her wee waist for more than two minutes, a feat which won her a pair of “Man of La Mancha” performance tickets at the Spencer.

Bigger than T-Rex

Exhibition of 45-foot carnivorous dinosaur on display at Western Heritage Museum , Jan. 23 - May 1 HOBBS — Imagine a dinosaur more fearsome and larger than a Tyrannosaurus Rex. In 1991, such a killer was discovered in Patagonia, near the southern tip of Argentina. Giganotosaurus (JIG-ah-NOTEoh-SORE-us), 45 feet long, was five feet longer and three tons heavier than the largest known T-Rex. This most fearsome carnivorous dinosaur, along with other prehistoric creatures, will be on display at the Western Heritage Museum & Lea County Cowboy Hall of Fame, on the campus of New Mexico Junior College, beginning Jan. 23. This is the first time “Bigger than T-Rex” has been on display in the southwest. The public is invited to a special reception Jan. 23 at 5:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. In a remodeled spacious gallery, visitors will come face to face with the full 45-foot long skeleton, with its huge skull full of sharp teeth, and threefingered hands with claws. Standing 14 feet tall and weighing about 10 tons, these creatures were indigenous to what is now Argentina about 100 to 97 million years ago, a whopping 30 million years before T-Rex appeared in North America. Like T-Rex, Giganotosaurus had relatively stunted front arms, which likely served an important function, and based on their skeletal structure, was faster than T-Rex, capable of sprints of 20 mph or more. In addition to Giganotosaurus, another gigantic killer dinosaur, the Mapusaurus, a close and somewhat larger relative found in the same region of Patagonia, will also be exhibited at the museum, with the only skeleton ever reconstructed of the animal. It lived one million years after Giganotosaurus, and is considered one of the most feared predators of its day. When discovered, there were nine Mapusaurs buried together, proving that big meat-eaters lived in packs. Additionally, visitors will learn about the Argentinosaurus, the largest animal ever to walk the earth, the Allosaurus, the largest carnivore of the Jurassic Period, the Albertosaurus, an ancestor of the T-Rex, and Amargasaurus, an herbivore from Patagonia, and more. A fossil dig pit will be installed for children to hunt for dinosaur bones and touch actual fossils. And a 20 foot by nine foot original painted mural will help bring pre-history to life.

The five-day nautical music festival will set sail from Miami on April 7 and visit Isla de Roatan in Honduras and Cozumel, Mexico, before returning to port on April 12. The cruise’s lineup also features Marillion, ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, Queensrÿche, U.K., former Yes keyboardist Patrick Moraz, Renaissance, Tangerine Dream, The Strawbs and Saga. In addition, famed Yes album artist Roger Dean will be along for the journey, together with an exhibit of his paintings. Prior to the 2014 Cruise to the Edge, Yes will mount a Canadian tour that runs from a March 19 show in Victoria through an April 2 concert in Hamilton. The band also has scheduled a pair of U.S. performances just before the cruise, on April 4 in Atlantic City and April 5 in Bethlehem, Penn. As they’ve done on their previous few treks, the group will perform three of their classic 1970s albums in their entirety at shows on their upcoming outing. Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
