My new installation, The Undulatory Theory of Light, which uses sound to create water waves according to changes in the colour temperature of daylight, was presented at Turner Contemporary, Margate on 2 June, 2018. The work formed part of an annual, sonic art festival, OSCILLATE, hosted by Turner Contemporary. The show also featured special contributions from my colleagues at the Orpheus Institute, Ghent (Jonathan Impett, Nicolas Collins, Simon Waters, Juan Parra, Daniela Fantechi) alongside performances by Leafcutter John, Elaine Mitchener, Evan Parker and others.
The installation ran for the duration of the event. I also gave a short, four-channel performance, feeding the signal from the RGB sensor to the speakers, in tandem with the sound from the vibrating water tank.

Two, related works will feature in this year’s Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. One is a transdisciplinary performance for concert-style presentation, the other is a domestic installation with ‘micro-performances’ that examines the demands of the former.
THE SOUL FINDS REST IN UNITY (2007) is an installation-performance in a domestic environment, in which violinist, Monica Germino, will reside for the duration of her stay in Huddersfield. Through video, sound, documents, drawings & micro-performances, this live installation theatricalizes the process of encountering my transdisciplinary work, THE BRAVERY OF WOMEN (2006-7), in terms of implications for the physical body and the violin-as-prosthesis. On 17 November, at 4 pm, Monica will give the first UK performance of this new work in her solo concert, PLUGGED & UNPLUGGED.
Information about these two events is available on the HCMF website.
