Here is some info about a talk, installation and performance I am
doing this coming Monday;
Paul J Rogers has been commissioned by MMU Cheshire to create a Sound
Installation for the University Centenary - September 10th & 11th 2012
MMU Cheshire - Crewe Campus - Crewe, Cheshire, England, UK
A sound installation and performance:
Performance is at 12.00 Noon on Monday 10th.
In Paul’s research based compositions and installations he explores
the extraneous sound event, the junk noises and extra, discarded
sound materials from recordings, objects and the environment; in this
Centenary themed installation he exploits the discarded sound
reproducing devices which span the last century, many of which were
found abandoned on the Crewe campus itself.
The development of the music media machine and its carrier formats
accelerated exponentially through the last century with mediums born
and dying in ever increasing cycles until the object vanished
entirely from view. Music now travels through time and space yet does
not exist as a physical object. As a set of digital instructions
awaiting to be decoded back into sound, music has become apparently
transparent and can be seen to have shed it's impurities. This
installation examines, reinstates and exploits those impurities which
have evolved over the last 100 years.
