Jimmie Peggie – Isolation Scenes 2020
A triptych of light, shadows and textures filmed / recorded in the immediate vicinity of my living space during the pandemic of 2020. These random observations help provide connection with the world during time spent alone.
Bernhard Living – Composition 2020.15 (Untitled)
Composition 2020.15 (Untitled) is twenty-five minutes and thirty-seconds in duration – and was produced digitally using FM and physical modelling synthesis. The components of the composition consist of repeating and fading sounds of different lengths – and a pulsing beat that continues throughout the duration of the composition. The composition is part of an ongoing series of technological mediations – exploring quietude and stillness within the context of ever evolving digital technology.
Composition 2020.15 (Untitled) Film is of a car journey through the centre of Moscow.
Nnja Riot – Fragmented Fortress
Nnja Riot will present a musical performance within a self-built virtual dreamscape in outer space. A neon lit isolation fortress with kaleidoscopic inclusions together with a soundscape performed in response to this imagined virtual enigma.
James L. Malone – Performance with Modular Synthesiser
A series of modular synthesiser recordings made during the first lockdown, focused on the generative potential of feedback networks. These have creatively edited and mixed into a piece and synchronised with a visual feedback system.
Laura Netz – Techno Track for Corpora Aliena
Tech noise – open-source/open hardware music
Bernhard Living is a composer, curator and former multi-instrumentalist. He studied composition under the South African-born composer professor Stanley Glasser at Goldsmiths College, University of London, and philosophy under professors Jonathan Reé and Peter Dews at Middlesex University, London.
Living’s digitally-based compositions have taken minimalistic compositional techniques to what he considers to be their logical conclusion, with his music being characterised by sparse textures, long periods of silence, maximal repetition and minimal variation.
