Ecstatic Material is a newly commissioned dynamic sound sculpture by musician and producer Beatrice Dillon and visual artist Keith Harrison which will expand and contract over back to back performances at venues across England.
This live experiment with sound and substance will be conducted through a modular system made up of malleable plastics, coloured light and multi-channel audio which is constructed, choreographed and diffused by the artists into the performance space.
Tour support comes from DJs Copper Sounds who spin copper dubplates, ceramic pots, and heavy icelandic rocks, using these materials to create a primitive and tactile form of turntablism. They will also lead a daytime workshop at each tour venue, where participants can design and cast their own playable wax 7” and take it home with them.
This tour is commissioned by OUTLANDS, curated and produced by Jennifer Lucy Allan and Al Cameron, promoted by Supersonic Festival and supported by Arts Council England and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
