TOMORROW, TODAY WILL BE YESTERDAY

The collective Sound/Video Art Installation Tomorrow, Today will be Yesterday was conceived and curated by Rui Almeida in 2015 and includes my vocal work  At First Light.

Events

The installation has had various airings so far. In 2015, it was first installed at Noc Noc Festival, Portugal. Then  it ran at the CAAA Gallery, Portugal for two months, and the Media Arts Festival, ELO, Victoria, Canada.

Coming up

The same installation will run from 3rd – 6th November 2016 at the Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA). The event is part of Light Moves Festival of Screen Dance.

It is very exciting to hear the chimes as they were intended when originally created by Sarah Tripp. Furthermore,  Radiophrenia 2016 festival is a perfect setting to listen to them, every hour on the hour for 24 hours amongst such a wealth of radio and sound art…

At First Light

At First Light (fixed medium 8’49)

Arising from a current strand of exploration around ideas of impermanence and the ephemeral,  At First Light, a vocal meditation, was inspired by the play of light at sunrise and a notion that each moment may be filled with the past, present and future. The process of making the piece involved repeated exploration of the material ideas using a simple MAXMSP patch, with the final work being created in a single real-time improvisation. While a version of the piece was ultimately fixed to become At First Light, inherent in the process and the material is an idea of transient evolution – emergence, cycle and decay.
