On Tuesday, 10th February, Tashkeel will host Live Electro-Acoustic Drawing, a one night performance that will include projected live drawing, both led and accompanied by sound on hand-made acoustic and electronic instruments.
The performance by Sofia Chatzisararanti, Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver forms part of Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver 's exhibition Systems for a Score currently on show at Tashkeel until 14th February 2015.
The performance will start at 7.30pm. Really looking forward to this.
About Systems for a Score:
Sound art can work to an unprecedented set of scores and there is a fluidity to it that reaches beyond the visual signifier. The language of sound, determined by subjective imagination and context, enjoys certain freedoms from the semantically binding codes that dominate the visual arts.
For their first exhibition in the region Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver construct a possible 'grammar of sound' from its own physical, occluded principles. Through the reiteration of sound across a series of forms, Systems for a Score delineates the subtle capacity of sound to bridge actual and imagined states.
Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver set out to examine the language of sound art from the premise that hearing is 'another form of seeing.'
Systems for a Score experiments with different patterns and technologies of sound-making, triggering our innate ability to decode, decipher and extract compositional or rhythmic patterns from both visual and audible matter. The exhibition challenges and capitalises on our perception of listening as a sensory experience conditioned by context, and explores how sound can be used to delineate the invisible or intangible while at odds with expected visual representations.
