The capturing of audio/sound as a component of performance recorded to video in public spaces can to some degree be at the discretion of the performer. Volume levels and the continuity and duration can be planned in a quiet moment at the outset, but final performances are often subject to the conditions of the site, on the day. The quality of the recording devices, the temperature, the number of people inhabiting the space at any given time, and the structural surrounds that come with features to subdue and reflect, provide unexpected moments during a performance to capture sound just being sound.
This workshop/performance will involve the collective harvesting of sound, either incidental or self-generated, in the Adam Art Gallery and its surroundings. Participants will meet at noon and will then have time to harvest/record/make+record any sounds they become aware of for over 3 hours, returning at any time up until 3 p.m, to share what they have found.
The overall aim of the workshop/performance is to create a bespoke gallery ‘noise’ and to consider the socio-legal nature of sound as part of, or incidental to, a performance.
Pawa runs on the contributions of our event goers and public funding.
We believe performance art should be assible to everyone, thats why majority of our shows are open to the public, however if you have funds to spare please consider contributing.
