Mark Vernon and Zoë Irvine work between art, music, radio and sound. The artists have been working prolifically at the forefront of their field since shifting from predominantly visual practices. They will talk about their individual practices and touch on their numerous collaborations together. Including their recent project, Hairwaves: which produced an irreverent blend of music, interviews, haircuts, dog groomers and the paranormal.

Radio, tape and found audio material creates intimate links between their practice. The dislocation of the recorded voice and the ability to manipulate, or cut up, tape creates a precursor to the limitless possibilities of digital manipulation which both artists employ with great sensitivity. Irvine's project MagneticMigrationMusic recomposed discarded fragments of audio cassettes collaged with location interviews. Recent works from Vernon have developed from experiments of amateur tape enthusiasts after he discovered The Derby Tape Club's archive at a boot-sale.

Upgrade! Scotland is proud to present Mark Vernon and Zoë Irvine this November who will bring their characteristic humor and the delight we share in recorded sound of all kinds.

Upgrade! Scotland is taking place at The Centre for Contemporary Art, Sauchiehall St, Glasgow
