Beyond Forgetting 1938 / 2018

Posted by on Aug 31, 2018 in Posts, Talks | No Comments

How do we meet and critically come to terms with memory, commemoration and often hidden histories, through artistic, pedagogical and performative means?

In August I travelled to Coburg, Germany to attend the International Beyond Forgetting Symposium.

I presented research related to Wunschendorf / Srbska, discussing the archive srbska.org and the film and immersive works inspired by it.

I’ve just completed this short film for Colin Riley, a London based composer. Colin’s new work ‘Songs of Coiled Light’ makes use of multi-sensory elements to provide a different kind of listening experience based on his research into hearing impairment. Featuring bass clarinetist Gareth Davis and live electronics designer Carl Faia it was filmed during a residency and several live performances taking place as part of the SoundFestival in Aberdeen.

I’ve just completed a video for the Bell Halsall duo. The duo, pianist Kate Halsall and electric guitarist Joel Bell performed an improvised electronic composition to the twenty minute video for their latest project, Horizontal transfer.

The video explores Coventry through themes of celebration, tradition, war, devastation, industry and regeneration and was compiled from archive footage from 1918 to the present day.
