Here, there and in-between is a series of three concerts curated by CRiSAP Director Cathy Lane for the Reel Lives public programme at London College of Communication, featuring performances and works from emergent and established sound artists from the UK and Europe.
At these events, the audience will be invited to sonically engage with aspects of the voice and language, places near and far and recent and current events through the different styles, ears and perspectives of each of the artists. Taking place in the main gallery at LCC, each session features an eight channel system, surrounding the audience and reconfiguring the gallery into an immersive listening space.
Caroline Bergvall – Together (Keeping it) (2015), Together (doing it) (2015), Crop (2010)
Caroline Devine – Poetics of (Outer) Space (2015)
Cathy Lane – Am I Here? (2018)
Caroline Bergvall is a French-Norwegian artist, poet and vocal performer based in London. Her work frequently develops through exploring material traces, literary documents and linguistic detail, language and literary history, sites and histories, hidden or forgotten knowledges. Her sparse textual, spatial and audio works often expose hidden or difficult historical/political events. Caroline works across artforms, media and languages.
Cathy Lane is a composer, sound artist and academic. Her work uses spoken word, field recordings and archive material to explore aspects of our listening relationship with each other and the multiverse. She is currently focused on how sound relates to the past, our histories, environment and our collective and individual memories from a feminist perspective. Cathy is Professor of Sound Arts and University of the Arts London and Director of Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice, UAL.
Caroline Devine’s practice explores voices, sounds and signals that are ordinarily imperceptible, silenced or in some way absent, such as natural radio emissions, solar resonances, electromagnetic signals and hidden voices. She has a particular interest in the use of space as a compositional parameter and site-specific sound installations include a display case of 19th century Indian instruments in the South Asia Gallery of the V&A, 18thCentury Perrott’s Folly, The Open University campus grounds, Alan Turing Hut 8 at Bletchley Park and the air conditioning system of Temple Contemporary Art Gallery in Philadelphia, USA. Devine has been shortlisted twice for a BASCA British Composer Award for her works ‘5 Minute Oscillations of the Sun’ and ‘On Air’. She is Creative Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Studies at the University of Birmingham where she is developing work in response to the NASA TESS mission.
