Sonic Waterloo installations at Old Paradise Yard. Interview with the artists:
Wire cages, dry leaves, speakers, photographs
Soundcages is an installation with two sound sculptures and two photographs that are the
products of an action on the ground of a
eucalyptus forest. The original experience consists of the sweeping of a dry leaf-free path. The sound performance through this sweeping gives rise to a pair of sound files and the two photographs as documentation of the experience, plus several sacks of dry leaves. The leaves have been enclosed in metal cages designed in such a way that a small, internal stereo loudspeakers can reproduce the sound archives. The resulting installation consists of the arrangement of the sculptures hanging and confronted with two large format photographs.
Atilio Doreste is a professor at the Painting & Fine Arts Department, Universidad de La Laguna; researcher at the University Institute of Social and Political Sciences ULL; director of the Art, Nature and Landscape (TAC) Taller de Acciones Creativas Research Group; director of the Aula Cultural de Fotografía ULL and the director of the Auriculab, Sound Art Laboratory ULL.
Fishing wire, perspex, found objects, solar powered synth box, amp
Ingrid Plum presents a site-specific installation for Sonic Waterloo that uses found glass objects to refract the sunlight amongst the birch branches. The sound accompanying this visual element will come from a solar powered synth box reacting to the different levels of sunlight placed in the birch tree branches, with a battery powered amp attached. Ingrid Plum creates work that sits between sound art, improvisation, multi-media installation and contemporary Nordic folk music. She studied Music and Visual Arts at the University Of Brighton choosing Sound Art Installation as her specialism. After graduating Plum specialised in site-specific installation with performance and was commissioned to show work in installation, film and performance nationally and internationally, before studying a Masters in Music Creative Practice at Goldsmiths, UoL. Originally trained in classical singing, Plum continued her studies to explore extended vocal technique in ethnographic research through practice before going on to study directly with Meredith Monk. Plum creates installations that conjure meditative environments and performs stripped back, minimal gigs. Referencing the sonic scope of the forests and coastlines of her native Denmark, she entices you into her hushed world.
