Viv Corringham is a British vocalist, composer and sound artist, currently based in New York, who has worked internationally since the 1980s. Her work includes performances, installations and soundwalks.  She is interested in exploring people's special relationship with familiar places and how that links to personal history and memory. She is a 2012 and 2006 McKnight Composer Fellow through American Composers Forum. Recent work has been presented at Soundworks, ICA, London; Around Sound, Hong Kong; Syros Sound Meetings, Greece; Sound Out, Canberra Australia; Tempo Reale, Florence, Italy; and Her Noise, Tate Modern, London, UK.

1-6pm Viv Corringham:  Shadow-walks in Melbourne
INSTALLATION (duration 14m21s)
This sound-work is part of my ongoing Shadow-walks project, in which I ask people to take me on walks that are meaningful for them in some way. While walking together, I record our conversations and the sounds of the environment. I then go back along the same route alone, attempting to get a sense of my previous companion’s traces on the walk. Then I sing what I feel using wordless improvisations. The recordings used in this work were made in Melbourne in 2014. My thanks go to the four ear-minded people who took me on their favourite walks:  Ros Bandt, Warren Burt, Catherine Clover & Anthony Magen.

6pm: Viv Corringham (voice) / Jacques Soddell (computer)
PERFORMANCE (duration: approx 20 min).

Three Minute Textures - Richard Pilkington

Three Minute Textures:

Richard Pilkington is an Audio Engineer and sound artist living with mental illness in Melbourne, Australia.

Richard's latest release "Three Minute Textures" features ten tracks of ambient electronics.

Richard says:

"I conceived an idea of a 30 minute album made of 10, 3 minute tracks exploring sound as a textural experience. 

I'd been pondering the idealised pop song length of 3 minutes and how happy I used to be when a whole album used to fit on a single side of a cassette tape.

The resulting album uses an analogue sound source processed through a digital algorithm I wrote in software called Max/MSP.

The combination of analogue signal with digital processing creates a reasonably unpredictable outcome though there are definite boundaries in place.

There was minimal human interaction involved in the creation of the 10 tracks.

I find the resulting sounds while devoid of inherent meaning, express some of the feelings and emotions I experience living with schizophrenia in an abstract way.

The tracks jump suddenly from harmony to discord to chaos which, in a way reflects the uncertainties of my life.

I hope that people can relax in to the chaos and find their own personal meaning within."

Three Minute Texures is available now for download at:
