This autumn, I am touring a research and performance project, If the bell rings we will hear it, with Samuel Rodgers to venues in Lincoln, Nottingham and Oxford, working with universities, festivals, arts organisations and other musicians to explore the role of the audience in improvised performance. We will perform with prepared flute, field recordings, and an array of objects and handmade instruments, exploring resonances between materials, synchronicity, and the precarity of listening. By moving around the space and throughout the audience we hope to draw people into an active form of listening, exploring proximity and distance, and a haptic relation between body, materials and space.
This first date for the project is with Extra Sonic Practice, a performance series led by Lincoln University. Whilst in Lincoln, we'll also be talking at an ESP research seminar at Lincoln University and delivering a workshop on improvisation with Sonophilia, the sound and music festival in Lincoln
