My sound walk work 'Walking with Crickets' is playing in this exhibition 'Live* from CICADA' which is a totally unique version of an online sound exhibition -
CICADA Gallery are exhibiting the work of twenty artists working in sound. Each audio work has been processed with an impulse response recording made within the the physical space of CICADA (an artist-run venue located in Ogden, Utah, America). By treating each piece with the natural reverberant qualities found within the approximately 1,325 cubic foot gallery space, a hypothetical performance takes place where the sonic works made in disparate locations now aurally appear to have been originally performed within the same subterranean structure.
The exhibition is actually the recorded document of this conceptual event!
Great video by ISSTA documenting the conference 'Temporary Autonomous Zones' last autumn.
Lovely to meet Robbie Judkins recently and to take a cricket song sound walk around east London together talking about the sound of crickets and insects.
His brilliant radio show Animal Sounds, has a new episode #8 Insects that will air on Resonance 104.4 FM on Friday 25th Nov at 20.00. and feature a bit of our walk.
Its also going to be online afterwards on the Resonance FM Mixcloud page.
