Performance by: Ben Crowden

Ben Crowden 2222 a selection of microcosms

‘A meeting between an advent calendar and the multiverse theory, a man in a blue boiler suit negotiates his way through a world of doors, each revealing slightly more absurd situation than the last.’

Ben Crowden invites us to see his new work in progress and asks from our collective knowledge ‘how best to step from the studio to the stage?’

SOLO Scratch: Tea with your Ancestors

  • Performance by: Alice Human

tea with your ancestors alice human

I am currently working on a piece called Tea with your Ancestors which is an exploration of both recorded and live landscapes, of which I have recorded a series of tracks with voices from my Grandparents and parents surrounding the ideas of death, re-birth and how we choose to connect with our ancestry and who we are in the world. I have yet to explore this material physically in a studio and create it into a live performance. I have two ‘songs’ also which are played on my pump organ that I want to experiment with. My aim would be to clarify what sonic material is relevant and work with it physically and explore the relationship between me and the audience I want to give the audience a sensory experience and to enable them to process the density of the audio.
