SoundFjord in collaboration with The Pigeon Wing, present an improvised, live sound art performance by Strange Attractor:
SATURDAY 19 November 2011 | 2pm ' 5pm | Free event, all welcome Venue: The Pigeon Wing Gallery (Visit: http://www.thepigeonwing.co.uk for directions)
After their highly successful gallery residency project in the Crawford Gallery, Cork, Ireland, Strange Attractor return with a new series of durational live performances in venues across Ireland and England in conjunction with the publication of a new book and DVD about the project.
Following on from the Irish book launch at the Crawford Gallery, Cork, Strange Attractor will travel to the UK for two London-based performances, the first a 'signature' durational performance on Saturday 19 November at The Pigeon Wing and following on, a gig at Café Oto on Monday 21 November.
Specific to The Pigeon Wing, Strange Attractor (featuring Anthony Kelly, Danny McCarthy, Irene Murphy, Mick O'Shea and David Stalling), will perform a three-hour improvisational sound performance; an experiment with technology and combined media to explore creative possibilities resulting in an experience that offers multiple points of entry for the audience. Everyone is welcome to come along and encouraged to move freely throughout the gallery space during the event.
These performances are in support of the new Strange Attractor full-colour publication with DVD, which documents all aspects of the project, including images from the live performances and gallery installations, live excerpts and other related recordings alongside specially commissioned essays from the likes of David Toop, Stephen Vitiello, Steve Roden, Jed Speare and Bernard Clarke. Signed copies of this publication will be available from The Crawford Gallery, Farpoint Recordings, The Pigeon Wing, Café Oto and SoundFjord.
The Strange Attractor project began in November 2010, with a series of monthly four-hour durational sound performances within the gallery spaces inviting, international guests including David Toop and Mary Nunan, Stephen Vitiello, Alessandro Bosetti, Rhodri Davies, Lee Patterson, Mel Mercier and Steve Roden amongst others. These performances attracted large audiences who have experienced the artists developing relationships between sound, visual art, music and choreography.
An audio CD Soundcast 4×4 (+1) is currently available from farpointrecordings.com. This CD features audio extracts from the first Strange Attractor performance and comes in an unusual fold-out sleeve designed by Peter Murray (Crawford Gallery, Cork, Ireland) and Francis Halsall (NCAD, Dublin, Ireland).
