Simpozeum / Sarah Tripp

I composed electroacoustic music for Simpozeum – a live performance by writer and artist Sarah Tripp.

Sarah created three spoken word/gesture performances: customs, objects, people, as part of ‘(Sim-poze-um)’, a collaborative installation event  by four Glasgow-based artists created for Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts. The performances took place in the Jeffrey Room, Mitchell Library, Glasgow.  The music for the performances was projected and diffused through a four-channel speaker system.
