Nada Presents: New Works For Unorthodox Loudspeaker Arrangements

Nada Presents: New Works For Unorthodox Loudspeaker Arrangements
Friday, July 26 7pm
Flux Arts Building in the HUB

“New Works For Unorthodox Loudspeaker Arrangements” re-examines the traditional model of stereo sound through an unusual loudspeaker configuration and new sound pieces by artists Michael M. Flora and Pooch Karton. NWULA attempts to create an environment where sound is the primary focus of the experience and the focus is on the act of listening. Whereas the dominant consensus regarding stereo sound recommends a fixed and central sweet spot, NWULA encourages the auditor to move about the room and examine their relationship to space in regards to what they are hearing.

Minneapolis / St. Paul Home Tour Coming to Flux Arts Building

When you are a newborn baby people love to check you out. We were approached the the Minneapolis – St. Paul Home tour to showcase the new the Flux Arts Building with all of the remodeling we did. While they don’t typically have commercial buildings on the tour coordinator Margo Ashmore wanted to highlight how similar it is for commercial spaces and residential to be built out. She loved our new experiential tile bathrooms. Also how we took an old building in the city and gave it new life instead of tearing it down and putting up a unremarkable new buildings. That is what the home tour is all about underscoring how to reuse and breathing new life into old buildings and show case their character.

The Flux Arts Building is Officially Open!

Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting

Kara Van Wyk of Potek Glass, Kevin Reich, Council Member, Ward 1, Josh Blanc and Layl McDill (via FaceTime), Jennifer Young and John Kraemer, Developers, Tim Gates, Architect and Malcom Potek cut the Grand Opening ribbon to start the festivities on February 15th.

The Grand Opening was a smashing success! Over 400 people stopped by to check out the new studios and the Flux Arts Building. It was great to be able to talk to so many people about the remodeling of the building. We put up a display of photos in the “hub” (our communal hallway space), which is currently still up, showing several stages of the remodel.
