An art exhibit about sound and music.

Byline: Bob Keefer The Register-Guard

Eugene has long been called Track Town USA, but it might as well be
called Music City, judging from an exhibit that opens with a reception
Friday evening and runs through the month at Opus VII in Eugene.

"Designing Sound," curated by Cindy Ingram, Opus'
now-departing director of membership and events, bills itself as "A
Visual Exploration Into Sound and Music."

What that means, in fact, is that Ingram - who also works as a
music promoter in town - has assembled a fascinating array of
paraphernalia from just about every corner of Eugene's music world.

"I expect visitors to find surprises around each corner,"
she says. "Expect strange and delightful sounds coming from works
of art, visual explanation of how sound is bent and transformed.
There's even a piece exposing the personal experience of musical
creativity. Eugene has never seen anything like this before."

The exhibit ranges from classically serious to impossibly quirky.

Eugene's master organ builder, John Brombaugh, contributed
photos of his massive pipe organs - no actual organs, unfortunately, as
they tend to be less than portable - as well as a charming
clavichord
 , keyboard musical instrument invented in the Middle Ages. It consists of a small rectangular wooden box, placed upon a table or on legs, containing a sounding board and a set of strings.

display of the stages of violin creation, starting with the raw wood.

At the other end of the spectrum, trumpeter Brian McWhorter, a

University of Oregon

 School of Music and Dance professor, has
contributed a Rube Goldberg-ish gadget he calls "The
Extractorama" - an old-fashioned bathtub outfitted with everything
from a telephone to a built in trumpet, at least of sorts.

In some ways, this might be a music exhibition for the hard of
hearing. Instead of music itself, Ingram has assembled the

Billy Barnett's Gung-Ho Studio is represented by a
1980s-vintage reel-to-reel recorder, perhaps once used to record the
Cherry Poppin' Daddies here.

Perhaps the coolest and most inscrutable of items on display is the
"New Rage Ambient Metal Music Machine" by composer Don Haugen.
He has wired a couple of iPods to speaker magnets behind three large
flat panels of sheet metal. Just imagine the harmonic possibilities.

There are futuristic electric instruments, low-tech music posters

to.

In its latest incarnation, Opus VII has been steadily finding its
way as a new venue for museumlike exhibits. This one is certainly an
intriguing success.
