CORRESPONDENCE: exhibition and performance with Embla Quickbeam (Brighton)

In a collaboration with Rowan Forristier-Walker, aka Embla Quickbeam, we have been exchanging cassette recordings and other artefacts towards making some music. For CORRESPONDENCE Rowan will play a live set using some of the swapped material, and leave remnants of the collaboration in the form of an installation.

Full details about the exhibition below.

CORRESPONDENCE is a contemporary exhibition taking place across real and virtual platforms, exploring how new technologies can promote the accessibility of the arts and change our idea of a public space. Fourteen artists, including recent graduates from the University of Brighton, are working together to make an exhibition at Prestamex House which will be mirrored by a virtual version in Second Life.

This version, which can be explored online, will work in parallel but need not be constrained by the laws of physical reality; the real exhibition will also appear on the internet in a second iteration relayed back by a roaming spybot. Echoing and complementing one another, the various versions of the show each have properties that the other lacks.

When exchange happens virtually, something physical still traverses the distance; our minds construct connections and worlds of meaning from the physical reality that we perceive. This group of artists will be exploring ideas of exchange, collaboration and representation, and their planning and discussion of the theme will itself be an integral part of the show. We invite you to investigate these territories with us, either in the reclaimed office space that is the hub of the show, or online at http://www.correspondenceexhibition.com.

Cassette release: Rindmice, “Fairytale Wasting Disease” – improv, noise, electronics

RindmiceAvailable now via Quagga Curious Sounds is the first release from Rindmice, a trio of myself, Anthony Donovan and Matt Chilton.

We played a few gigs together in 2014, using synths, electronics, household objects, turntable and dubplates. Two live recordings make up the release: one from a decomissioned minesweeping vessel and one from a high rise towerblock, both in London.

Michael Ridge from the label created the two panel colour art work, which is packaged in a clear 6″x6″ zip lock bag. Each copy comes with either a red or blue glitter tape and small red or blue rubber stamped sticker mounted onto the shell.

Buy from the label here, and listen below.
