Our summer Tertulia will take place at Arnolfini, on Wednesday 16th of July, 7pm. Maybe in the Reading Room, maybe in the Light Studio – haven’t decided yet.
We’re delighted to be hosting:
who will present and speak upon a selection of ethnographic field recordings which address the politics of silence, the inaudible, and the barely audible. Featuring recordings of the ‘Are’are panpipe ensembles of Melanesia, flute songs of the Dayak in Borneo, Inuit throat songs, the gospel music of rural Louisiana, and a descendent of Tuvan shamans. Examples of previous lecture-performances in this series can be heard at noahangell.net
whose work is primary engaged with the act of listening and the exploration of found sound. Past projects include Oberhausen Spur a research residency at Kitev in Oberhausen, Sound Sweep at Spike Island, Bristol and Plant Orchestra a collaboration with Luke Jerram listening to the micro sounds of plants at Riga Botanical Gardens, Latvia. His work is also featured in the I.C.A.’s Soundworks collection and his Piano Works installations were recently shown at Schmalfilmtage, an analogue film festival in Dresden, Germany.
and Ellen Wilkinson:
presents things as they are
occasionally slips into parallel universes
is interested in minutiae
suggests absurd, deadpan methods for making sense of the world
draws upon found images, overheard conversations and lucky encounters
adopts a hobbyist approach
embraces coincidence and chance alignments
looks for tensions
revels in familiarity giving way to the unsettling
likes futile and ineffectual disguises
enjoys slight disruptions of normality
celebrates quiet subversions
employs apparent straightforwardness
makes things that look easy
tries to be economical
Hope to see you there.x.
