Amy Cutler
Haunted fieldtrips into the landscapes which fall between lullabies and death chants. Instruments: guitar, bass guitar, pedals, chanting, rain, processed electronics, record hiss, field recordings, unnamed VHS coming of age movie (1984). Visuals: moss and liverworts in Ludchurch chasm. (This stone chasm is a legendary site where several dead souls are commemorated.) Dr. Amy Cutler is a geographer, musician and filmmaker who makes B-movies for humans and nonhumans. Her next tape release is the end (also ends) of (the) earth and variants (Crow Versus Crow, 2020).

on & off
on&off is a collaborative performance project between artists Nikolai Kozin and Martin Lau. Nikolai creates live animated drawings accompanied by noise/soundscapes produced by Martin, with each element being improvised in response to the other.

Isn’tses & raxil4
Sound artists Isn’tses + raxil4 are in collaboration at Epping Forest to explore the nature of arboreal electronics. A get together in the woods in a Bare Glitch Project. On a fallen tree, a log of epic proportions, the three members Lisa McKendrick, Tim Drage and Andrew Page amalgamate their battery operated, circuit bent, self made instruments. From inside the tree can be felt the vibrations of unpredictable sounds in chaotic unison. From afar passers-by wonder if there is alien activity in the woods.

The fly vision algorithm is based obviously on the eyes of flies: “A compound eye is a visual organ found in arthropods such as insects and crustaceans. It may consist of thousands of ommatidia, which are tiny independent photoreception units that consist of a cornea, lens, and photoreceptor cells which distinguish brightness and color.” The visualization code takes an image from a single lens webcam, and processes it to emulate the ommatidia. Arranged in a hexagonal grid, which is an optimal packing reached by evolution, each cell has a wide angle, with overlapping edges repeating parts of the image and enhancing the drama of moving objects. The colour of the cells are modified according to the volume levels of three frequency bands of audio (bass, mids, treble). Over time the size of the cells are modulated, zooming disconcertingly.


Heya (هي)

Heya (هي) (‘she’ in Arabic and also a friendly greeting in English) is a research project facilitated by Goldsmiths PhD researcher, sound artist and composer Jilliene Sellner that works towards bridging women who make sound, noise, field recordings, experimental music, and electronic music with each other and a global audience. The main geographical areas of focus are Cairo, Tehran, Istanbul and Beirut as a set of examples of homogenous contexts but which all have experienced uprising and suppression since the Arab and Green Springs and Geza Park protests.

The co-creation consists of live networked performances between Nour Sokhon (LE), Jilliene Sellner (CA/UK), Yara Mekawei (EG) and Zeynep Ayşe Hatipoğlu (TU).
