Illustrated Talk | Duncan Whitley


Illustrated Talk | Duncan Whitley THURSDAY 11 April 2013 | 7:30pm | SoundFjord | RSVP Duncan Whitley speaks about his visual and sound practice, and his commission, Sbarbi's Arrow. The talk will be illustrated by imagery, sound and film. Duncan Whitley practices as a visual artist and sound recordist. His creative output ranges from project-specific field recording archives, to multi-channel sound work, film and video, and site-responsive sound installations. As an artist working with both musical and "non-musical" sound, he is fundamentally concerned with themes of acoustic communication — language mediated in and through sound — and the experience of visual and acoustic space. His approach to working with sound is at once forensic and poetic, marked by both rigorous methodology and a delicate, subtle aesthetic language. Duncan explores themes of sound, space/place and collective memory: in the empty wards of ex-NHS hospital buildings; in the football stadiums across the breadth of the UK; in the religious processions of southern, Catholic Spain; or in the journeys of shepherds in the Portuguese mountain villages of Magaio. Much of his recent work explores emergent issues in contemporary sound work, in particular those related to contemporary ethnography and socially-engaged art practice.
