Programme of works – Wednesday, 29th January 2020
1: Lydia Davies
Title: In her left hand she clutched a pair of gloves
Synopsis: Using narration, this work toys with the system of linear perspective
through the observation of a woman walking down a hill and another woman walking
up it. The voice repeats itself, substituting words with their synonyms. The work plays
with the dragging and tightening of pace and rhythm in speech, as a new exploration.

at all times to capture her life with the author and their son Andrew. This
extraordinarily intimate audio archive of over 1,000 cassettes now sits with the

access to select excerpts from it and curate sonic conversations from others. 23
artists and musicians were invited to remix the rare material into a unique Burgess
portrait far beyond ‘A Clockwork Orange’ including reinterpretations by Chris Watson,
Dinah Bird and Scanner. Of the two pieces I made for consideration – this is the one
that was not included on the LP, just with the download version. ‘Conversations with
the Anthony Burgess cassette archives (1964-1993)’ is available from Sub Rosa now.
