This event celebrates the work of the Coterie Collective with a night of audio and visual works created by select members of the group. The collective officially came together when creating a compilation, Neck of the Woods, brought about because of various members' commissioned sound works at Kew Gardens:
In the summer of 2011 Leslie Deere, Riz Maslen and Kaffe Matthews were commissioned to create sound installations, which exhibited during the length of the Kew Summer Festival. The bespoke sound works were installed in Kew's most iconic spaces including the Palm House and Redwood Forest.
Last year was the UN International Year of Forests. In honor of that, and the majesty of Kew, the idea of conducting site-responsive field recordings was born. Most of these artists travelled to Kew, chose a location on the garden map and conducted one-take recordings responsive to the space. Nadine Richardson played Asian flute in the Bamboo Forest; Philip Granell improvised with violin in the Waterlily House. Other artists conducted field recordings in alternative areas around London and abroad, offering a glimpse of varying outdoor locations and atmospheres.
The limited edition, handmade release will be available in store throughout SOUND//SPACE. It is to be seen as a celebration of field recordings, conducted in cherished places, hopefully capturing a memory and a whimsical moment in time. More information on the release is available here:
