QUADROPHONIC CONCERT by JOHN WIESE
436 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles, 90036
John Wiese will be offering a special quadraphonic concert on the final night of his exhibition, 100 Seven Inch Records at Family. Four speakers will be placed in each corner of the gallery, each with a distinct channel.
From the preface: “A 7-inch record is the best format. I spent the majority of my youth mail-ordering 7-inches and waiting, usually months, for them to arrive. 7-inches really are the best because, practically speaking, the only thing you can do while they play is listen to them.” – John Wiese
