Sadly Team Sports have had to pull out of this Saturday’s event. Their replacement on the bill will be John Bradburn, performing under his Yaldabaoth moniker (see below).
Bang the Bore XV: Depth Sounding
Featuring: Robert Curgenven, Kostis Kilymis, Will Montgomery & Yaldabaoth
7.00pm – 10.00pm, Saturday 22nd September 2012
John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton, SO17 1BJ
Free entry/donations gratefully accepted
Coinciding with Rona Lee’s exhibition – That Oceanic Feeling – which explores undersea environments, resources and topographies in the context of the ocean as the our most potent symbol of the unconscious – Bang the Bore’s fifteenth Southampton event explores the sonic mapping of water via field recordings, resonance methodologies and contact mic strategies.
Performing using materials used in the creation of his Go Outside CD (5 hours of recordings of the Taurion River created by Cedric Peyronnet) Curgenven’s deliberately impossible intention – of assembling a sound work that addresses the river in its entirety – draws our attention to the inadequacy of representation and the limits of our ability to conceptualise and relate to our environment.
A musician, installation and video artist, Kilymis’ exploratory concerts frequently use feedback systems to investigate the acoustic properties of the physical environments in which he performs. In using sound to map space his working methods strike parallels with the use of sonar to map undersea topographies.
A keen examiner of London’s acoustic environment, Montgomery first came to Bang the Bore’s attention because of his Thames Water hydrophone recordings (released on Compost and Height) and his writing for Wire magazine. At Depth Sounding he will be presenting a selection of his water documentation.
The solo project of John Bradburn, who will be contrasting the sounds of water inside and outside the human body via treated field recordings and contact mics attached to flesh.
