Sonically Depicting's first night of sound art in Whitespace Gallery, featuring Shadowplay from Leipzig/UK, Ingrid Plum from Brighton and Edinburgh's own The Reverse Engineer.
Live arts collective Colliding Lines present Shadowplay, a unique, cinematic experiment in live literature. Suspended in a dark auditorium, the audience are alone save for white words projected into the pitch black canvas. Around them a soundtrack emerges; a post-apocalyptic score improvised by sound artists Jacob and Reuben Kyriakides. It is a story about the power of language to make reality and, inevitably, undo it — a story of what happens when stories fail, written in words that are taking themselves apart.
Ingrid Plum uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings and electronics, to create layered soundscapes, spoken word and songs. Having performed and exhibited installation sound art and visual art since 2002, she creates work that sits between sound art, improvisation, multi-media installation, neo-classical and contemporary Nordic folk music.
THE REVERSE ENGINEER
Polyrhythmic soundscapes built from algorithms, field recordings and found sounds by Dave House — an electronic musician, sound artist and graphic designer based in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh-based composer and researcher, engaged in sound synthesis and composition with computers, exploring specific formal developments in the tradition of electroacoustic music and contemporary sound art, as well as extra-musical domains of auditory design, computational linguistics and psychoacoustics. He works across performance, multimedia installation and radio productions probing the dynamics between formalism of synthetic sound and its material realisation.
