UNSOUND :::THE SHAPE OF SOUND:::

Exhibition with Gil Kuno and panke.gallery sound night with Wiggle

The work of Gil Kuno is an intricate tapestry of sound art, installations, and video art. For this solo exhibition at panke.gallery, we aim to exhibit his earliest art creations – those created on the Internet in the 90s. 2024 marks the 30th anniversary of the first of these creations, Unsound.

“Unsound.com” (1994) was a pioneering media experiment that fused sight and sound, allowing users to interactively engage with artists’ works in both visual and audio formats. Through crowd-sourcing, it facilitated artistic curation by audience votes – an innovation that even captured the admiration of Timothy Leary, who subsequently endorsed the site.

In 1996, Gil Kuno introduced Wiggle, the world’s first Internet band. This groundbreaking endeavour leveraged the Internet’s connectivity to forge musical collaborations across geographical boundaries, culminating in a band composed of members from Japan, Australia, and the United States. They achieved a major label deal and released multiple albums, all while some band members remained faceless due to the geographically dispersed nature.
