My talk “Seeding The cloud: Broadcast Entities and Digital Storytelling” draws some observations about the recently commissioned digital performance hybrids in the UPstream programme which I developed as a strand within SHPLive.TV, supported by greenhouse.
I’ll probably use this as material to work into my next blog article for Create Hub.
Here’s the video from the Live Theatre Broadcast day, which features Marcus Romer (Artistic Director, Pilot Theatre), Ross MacGibbon (Royal Opera House Cinema Screen Director), John Wyver (Director, Illuminations Media) and myself from the culture sector.
The duo performed a 45 minute set of spontaneous music, 30 minutes of which is captured in this Gene Pool episode. Simon Whetham mixes his original field recordings with live sound from an amplified metal bucket, fire grate and other objects. Jan Hendrickse uses a variety of winds, including bass flute with delicate electronic tones.
Part of the “Embedded” live streamed “sofa concert” series. Acclaimed artist, instrument builder and kinetic sculptor, Max Eastley performs live with SARU’s Paul Whitty.
Delving deep into textural improvisation, with electronic processes warping and shifting an array of stones, aquarium bubbles and ceramic objects. Max Eastley’s distinctive bowed monochord becomes a plaintive voice in a pixellated flux of sound.
