From 21st September I will spend 2 weeks in Glasgow working with Rosanna Irvine on developing new work. We have time and space to work on extending the performance piece Material+Transition which we presented as part of Breath Pieces, at Tramway in June last year.
Material+Transition works with the material possibilities of sound prior to the emergence of language using a compositional structure that involves deep listening, progressive, embedded transitions and ‘melding’ of sounds – so displacing the individual voice. We will take this approach to develop compositional methods for working also with gesture and towards language, to create ‘some variations’ that seek always to exceed the dualism of two: the binary of you and me.
Through the second week we will be at The Workroom in Tramway, and we plan to share some of the outcomes of our working on Friday 4th October at 6.00pm.
