Sonic Catering Band / Gordon Monahan / Marianthi Papalexandri @ OVADA gallery, Oxford
Wednesday 12 March 2014, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Part of the Audiograft 2014 festival.
Sonic Catering Band: After a bout of food poisoning and a consequent dream concerning a telepathic alliance between Tory Health Minister, Stephen Dorrell and a tapeworm sect, The Sonic Catering Band formed, striving to pursue a new working practice in electronic music whilst not having to worry about where their next meal would be coming from.
Gordon Monahan: Fruits and vegetables become voltage input controllers for a software-based audio synthesizer. Six fruits and vegetables are placed on a table. A zinc terminal and a copper terminal are inserted into each fruit and vegetable, so that each organic object becomes an acid battery that produces approximately one volt of electricity.
Marianthi Papalexandri: ‘Untitled II’ builds on modified membraphones developed by Marianthi Paplexandri-Alexandri as main instruments utilizing Pe Lang’s motor-activated devices. It is a work adaptable to any space that can be presented both as a sounding sculpture and as an instrument in the context of a solo live performance, thereby questioning the role of the performer and the difference between performing and operating.
