Description

We are for a while is a 45 minute work for 4 performers, live electronics and lights, created as part of an 18 month residency with the London based experimental music group Apartment House. Using as its starting point the concept and process of ‘recycling', much of the performers’ actions consist of using, dismantling, reconstructing and reusing found objects, broken instruments and lo-fi technology, accumulated from recycling centers, derelict buildings, skips, beaches, alleyways and other strange places over the course of one year. Expanding on the theme, pre-existing music from nearly 20 composers, sound artists and performers especially donated for this project will be ‘recycled’ and re-contextualised within this new work, all bound together by live lighting created with the help of Michael Cutting and Sarah Hill.
