INSTALLATION-PERFORMANCES

HCMF 2007

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.

Rainbow Book Screening | Birdboxes

On June 11, 2007, I’ll be making an installation and giving a live performance for OCM (Oxford Contemporary Music) at The Jam Factory, Oxford.

The installation will be AN AUDIENCE WITH THE TREES (2005). Using six, musical birdboxes, this work transforms Vivaldi’s Four Seasons into birdsong, via my violin concerto of 2003, Vivaldi’s Menagerie.

I’ll also be performing my 1999 pianowork, THE RAINBOW BOOK, for which I’ve recently made a series of short videoworks. Each video is designed to be controlled by the live performance of each piece of music. Overall, the work addresses the physiological effect of colour on the human eye, according to Goethe’s Theory of Colours.
