Studio improvisations.

The recordings are mono. From instrument to hard drive. From hard drive to tape. Each of the four tracks were made using the Drone & Drama v2 instrument. The recordings were selected from a pool of recordings made over the course of one working week. Each day (Monday to Friday) four recordings were made using the same guidelines. Four studio improvisations of around five minutes were recorded according to the following guide to how to use the instrument.

Drone to drama.
Drama to drone.
Drone to drama & back.
Drama to drone & back.

After capturing the recordings four of the representations were selected for release.

Cassette & sine instrument.

The recordings should be played back and played along with using the sine instrument. The listener / audience ‘finishes’ a composition by giving it attention. Listening is a form of composition; deciding, discriminating. The inclusion of an instrument with this recording offers another type of participation to the audience. This is to make available and explicit the active role people can have when deciding to spend time on music activities.

Contribute to the composition. Complete the work.

The instrument requires a 12 volt DC power source (2.1mm tip negative) this is not supplied in the box set.

Catalyst Audio Tracks is a Catalyst Members series that focuses on the world of sound art. We reached out to our members to submit work in Drone, Noise, Ambient, Electroacoustic, Field Recording, Synthesis Exploration, or All/None-of-the-above and this compilation is the result.

This event is the presentation of that compilation and it takes place in the Sonic Arts Research Centre‘s very own Sonic Laboratory. A specialist acoustic space designed with 48 loudspeakers, strategically located, will project and move sounds throughout the space, including underneath the audience.

INTERZONE @ Catalyst Arts, Belfast

24th May – 5th July 2018

Barry Cullen | Jonny McEwen  | Una Monaghan | Saul Rayson  | Susannah Stark

Interzone brings together a group of internationally prominent and emergent artists whose approaches to their individual art practices embrace sound, installation and visual components. The project is a six week conversation, the gallery re-imagined as liminal land between borders, playing host to a sustained exploration of the multi-faceted, complex, mutually invigorating relationships possible across visual and sonic art practices and rejecting outmoded separation between disciplines within contemporary art. Codes, glitches and loops permeate the assembled constituents of the exhibition, instigating a shifting inter-connection between what is seen and heard. The title references both the International Zone setting of William S Burroughs taboo breaking 1959 novel Naked Lunch and the mysterious, dreamlike “Zone” in Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 film Stalker.

Interzone will be complemented by a series of live Sonic Art performances on the opening night and to coincide with June and July Late Night Art Belfast.
