My new track The Bulging, Rust-Eaten Plates That Kept Back the Ocean is playing as part of a new exhibition exploring “Darkness in Sound and Art” this Monday, in East London.
The track was recorded during my time as artist in residence on a decommissioned light-vessel on the Kent coast, drawing inspiration from that overwhelming sonic environment. The ship’s history had parallels with Joseph Conrad’s Lord Jim, including a sea collision which it survived: the title of the track is from the novel.
The track was recorded live, in one take, using: analogue synthesizer, modified turntable and dubplates, contact mic and a microphone outside the studio for live environmental sound.
The event features an exhibition, several newly commissioned sound works, panel discussion, and various gigs. Much more info about the event here, although please be aware that the evening event now takes place at The Camp, not Red Gallery.
