Kate Carr has been investigating the intersections between sound, place, and emotionality both as an artist and a curator since 2010. During this time she has ventured from tiny fishing villages in northern Iceland, explored the flooded banks of the Seine in a nuclear power plant town, recorded wildlife in South Africa, and in the wetlands of southern Mexico.
"These pieces are full of space yet dense with a particularly modern dread. At times, to draw us closer, she plays a few reverberant guitar notes. Otherwise, it’s chirruping wildfowl, water, bass of indeterminate origin and always, the anxiety-inducing purr, buzz and whine of electricity. It is the soundtrack of psychosis for Chuck in Better Call Saul and a metaphor for the low-humming knowing that there’s no escape, not even in nature." The Guardian
Luca Nasicuti will perform a solo set with live visuals. Field recordings are his main source material and he combines different disciplines to draw stories, ideas and reflections on the environment we inhabit.
‘Luca Nasciuti’s beautiful palindromic soundscape, performed surrounded by large packing boxes recalled the electronic drone music of artists such as Jacob Kirkegaard and Ben Frost. However, Nasciuti’s source—the recorded silences of empty or deconsecrated churches—lent the piece a structural integrity all of its own. This is sound art of a distinctive character’.
