Helen Thorington: Harris Skibell's
Exchange: Barter and Bow

Reprinted from EAR Magazine, June 1989

The New York Stock Exchange. The violin. The Sun3 computer system. Radio. What do these four have in common?

Exchange will be a dialogue between two powerful symbols from the worlds of commerce and art. Skibell says that he's inviting the listener to say, "What the...?" when confronted with the dual subjects. And to that question, he says, "the music of Exchange is the only answer."
