I am undertaking this residency as an initiator of and participant in General Assembly of Interested Parties.
Briefly, my overarching purpose is to be accessible and available to those interested in interacting, observing, listening and conversing.
I am offering a soundplay/ new listening workshop for people interested in sound-making as an exploratory, creative and consciousness expanding adventure.
No musical experience is necessary. I am also offering individual musical encounters.
Within the gallery I intend to be working visually and aurally, but whatever may transpire in the space will be understood as constituting performance. I will also be venturing outside into the town and countryside in this capacity.
In addition MIM and GAIP will be hosting other visiting artists during the residency joining me in activities and functioning independently.
There will be a ‘noticeboard’ in the window informing the viewer of the days' ‘schedule’ and upcoming planned activities but there will also be plenty of unscripted happenings within the space and at other external locations.
Whilst engaging in traditional arts practices is often a starting point, a broader social, performative, collaborative, conversational process is sought.
