Enter Ell Hall from Krentzman Quad, and you’ll hear music echoing throughout the lobby. The same intriguing sounds can be heard while walking down the cor­ridor leading from the Curry Stu­dent Center indoor quad.

They’re coming from Gallery 360’s first-​​of-​​its-​​kind sound instal­la­tion, fea­turing work by the late Earle Brown, who studied at North­eastern in the 1940s and was a leading com­poser of the Amer­ican avant-​​garde since the 1950s. Run­ning through Feb. 26, the exhibit is the result of a col­lab­o­ra­tion between Gallery 360 and Northeastern’s Depart­ment of Music in the Col­lege of Arts, Media and Design.

The show marks the U.S. pre­miere of Brown’s sound instal­la­tion Music for Galerie Stadler (1964). Brown orig­i­nally cre­ated the elec­troa­coustic work for an exhibit in Paris in col­lab­o­ra­tion with artist David Budd and poet William Bur­roughs. Four tape tracks dis­tinct in con­tent and dura­tion are con­tin­u­ously looped and chan­neled through four speakers to yield a shifting tex­ture of sound. Linger in the envi­ron­ment long enough and hear rare bits of Brown impro­vising on trumpet.

Rebecca Kim, a post­doc­toral teaching asso­ciate in the music depart­ment, orga­nized the instal­la­tion and exhibit with gallery curator Bruce Ployer and Mike Frengel, an aca­d­emic spe­cialist in the music depart­ment. “Gallery 360 has cre­ated a space to dis­cover Earle Brown through sound and image, and to expe­ri­ence this envi­ron­ment over and over again in any manner one chooses,” Kim said. “You might walk through the space every week on the way to class, or stop to view a wall of images and notice a coun­ter­point between two chan­nels while standing directly under two speakers.”

The exhi­bi­tion fea­tures more than 30 pho­tographs and doc­u­ments from Brown’s career, many of them show­cased for the first time. Con­trib­u­tors to the col­lec­tion com­prise the Earle Brown Music Foun­da­tion, Lunen­burg His­tor­ical Society, North­eastern Uni­ver­sity Archives, the pri­vate col­lec­tions of James Klosty and Car­olyn Brown, and the Boston Sym­phony Orchestra Archives.

The exhibit’s unveiling coin­cided with “Beyond Nota­tion: An Earle Brown Sym­po­sium.” The con­fer­ence was hosted last month by North­eastern Uni­ver­sity with sup­port from The Earle Brown Music Foun­da­tion and fea­tured talks and con­certs at the Fenway Center, Blackman Audi­to­rium, and Calder­wood Hall of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
