Programme of works – Wednesday, 28th August 2019

 

1: Tony Morris

Title: A Recollection

Synopsis: The melody from Alkan’s 13th Esquisse of Book 2, ‘Ressouvenir,’ has

haunted me for many years and I’ve often toyed with the idea of incorporating

into a piece of my own. What you will hear this evening is very much the first

draft of an attempt to do that and before I finesse (ruin???) the piece I would

like to hear it in a different context from my home studio. In particular, I would

like to hear it in a context where there is an audience; for one is then

(vicariously) hearing it through the imagined ears of others.

Duration: 3 minutes 17

 

2: tandsmør

Title: no bus: one piece out of four from an installation called sheer data:shy

data, showcased at this year’s Supernormal festival.

Synopsis: An improvised sound piece captured on a dusky night around about

solstice, recalling being stranded overnight in Dumfries & Galloway dark sky

friendship and solace.

Title: Horizons

I have been dreaming about

Shapes and forms

Shapes, rhythms, motions.

Movement matter.

Biography: Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based artist whose work exists on the

fringes of sound art, experimental music and broadcasting. At the core of his

practice lies a fascination with the disembodied intimacy of the recorded voice,

environmental sound, obsolete media and the re-appropriation of found

recordings. A keen advocate of radio as an art form, he co-runs Glasgow art

radio station, Radiophrenia and has produced programmes for stations

internationally.
