ReAwakening of a City - a micro-performance

Joseph Young aka Giuseppe Marinetti will be the latest Artist-in-Residence with Blast Theory, in Brighton from April 26th-30th.

"In this latest piece of research, I will work solo, using field recordings from Portslade, found objects on the street and text, to present a short binaural location performance for an audience of 8 people at a time. I am interested in the theatricality of the binaural medium, whereby the listener is immersed in a 3D soundscape. To create the illusion of an aural stage, I will be using the “dummy head” technique. Supported by the lovely people at Blast Theory, I intend to develop a short performance score, weaving together text and sounds, both “live” and recorded, to create a noise network, following Russolo’s classification system in the Art of Noises manifesto."

"This work-in-progress will be experienced via headphones in a forgotten corner of 20 Wellington Road on Friday 30th April 6.30-8.30 p.m. I hope it will be both playful and insightful; an unusual way of experiencing those sounds/images that we normally ignore or consciously block out."

RSVP to Dan Lamont by Thurs 29th April
