A huge thank you to the #Apo33 collective for inviting me to participate in Electropixel9 on 5th July 2019 in Norwich. They’re a French sound art collective who are currently touring an amazing array of performances and sound installions around Europe, including David Tudor’s Rainforest IV which the group had re-created upstairs at St Mary’s Works in collaboration with NNSAC. I took a little tour of the installation in the dark, just the ambient street lighting sneaking through the rooflights, throwing shadows of all various objects suspended from wires on the ceiling – everything from crash barriers to kettles – the transducers whirring away to themselves like tiny washing machines! It very much felt like I was witnessing the living embodiment of the old conundrum, “If a tree falls in the forest and there is no-one there to hear it, does it make a sound?”
Next stop for them is London – catch them at Goldsmiths on Thursday (and other places around LDN next weekend). Special shout-out to #Enerzion aka Chloe Malaise 😘 and to Oliver Payne of NNSAC for the picture below.
