The Wired Salutation results from a collaboration between visual artist Angela Bulloch and composer and musician David Grubbs.

Bulloch sets into motion the process by which images and ideas degrade -- decline, simplify -- while expanding to encompass video, live performance, and a composition for theatre lighting, taking the audience on a trip inside the image.  David Grubbs stresses and strains an initially coherent piece of music until its constituent parts agree to peacefully disassemble.  The live musical component is undertaken by a group featuring Grubbs (electric guitar and voice) and Italian musicians Andrea Belfi (drums and electronics) and Stefano Pilia (electric guitar).

The Wired Salutation was first presented at the Centre Pompidou, Paris and recently restaged at the Theatre der Künste in Zurich.

Angela Bulloch's conceptually rigorous works deal with systems and structures that engage the expectations of her audience.  Her sculptures often incorporate light, sound or text addressing issues of authorship and aspects of time. Bulloch's work has been shown around the world, notably at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, The Power Plant, Toronto, Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, Secession Wien, Vienna, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, ICA, Philadelphia, the Serpentine Gallery, London, the Biennials of Venice, Shanghai, Lyon and Valencia. She played bass guitar with the band Big Bottom.

David Grubbs is known for his solo albums and his participation in Gastr del Sol and the Red Krayola, as well as for his cross-disciplinary collaborations with Susan Howe and Anthony McCall.  He is the author of the book Records Ruin the Landscape: John Cage, The Sixties, and Sound Recording.

The trio of Grubbs, Andrea Belfi and Stefano Pilia can be heard together impersonating a thunderstorm viewed from a mountaintop on the 2009 album Onrushing Cloud and on the more extroverted and wide terrain of Dust & Mirrors (2014).
