The Element Resists

SUMMER CLUB // SOUND presents...

Field recordings comprising noise sources (Brownian noise, distant traffic, or ‘silence’) are played back through glass vessels and bullions, drawing tones out of these spectra that fluctuate in relation to their ebb and flow. Samuel moves these objects in relation to one another, creating subtle shifts in the field of sound. Samuel also moves around the space, slowly moving a loudspeaker in relation to a vessel, or softly striking a glass bullion. Rebecca inserts materials into the flute, altering the passage of air through the instrument, resulting in unstable and complex noises out of which tones also emerge. Rebecca also moves around the space, exploring its acoustics, and drawing tones into the existing field of sound. 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, space and materials.

Please note that this performance starts at 5pm and finishes at 6pm. 
NB all children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult

Rebecca Lee and Samuel Rodgers have been working together since 2013 when they performed a number of scores by Jack Harris as part of his residency at Primary in Nottingham. In 2014 they performed a new work at Rammel Club in Nottingham, later performing this work as part of Oxford Improvisers’ programme. Since that time they have been developing their improvisatory practice for prepared flute and piano, as well as a more expansive performance practice that explores relations between materials, touch, movement, space, and listening.
