Sound cast in salt.

For a new solo show in London, Banks Violette cast in salt all of the equipment art-metal band SUNN0)) uses in concert and presented it in a gallery just upstairs from the stage where they played. As they roared on below, viewers in the exhibition could still hear them: "the upstairs will be a ghostly, elegiac reconstruction of the downstairs performed work - the only 'evidence' or documentation of what the audience was blocked from seeing downstairs."

I read about that band in this past Sunday's New York Times Magazine. Sounds like a pretty Warholian affair...
