ReAwakening of a City – a micro-performance

Residency:
In this latest piece of research, I will work solo, using field recordings from Portslade, found objects on the street and text, to present a short binaural location performance for an audience of 8 people at a time. I am interested in the theatricality of the binaural medium, whereby the listener is immersed in a 3D soundscape. To create the illusion of an aural stage, I will be using the “dummy head” technique.

Supported by Blast Theory, as part of their Artist-in-Residence programme, I intend to develop a short performance score, weaving together text and sounds, both “live” and recorded, to create a noise network, following Russolo’s classification system in the Art of Noises manifesto. This work-in-progress will be experienced via headphones in a forgotten corner of 20 Wellington Road. I hope it will be both playful and insightful; an unusual way of experiencing those sounds/images that we normally ignore or consciously block out.

Background:
Founded by Joseph Young in 2007 and inspired by the Milan Futurists and the poetics of the Dada movement, The NeoFuturist Collective is of a group of artists who have come together to celebrate urban noise in all its’ visual and aural forms.
