The SOUNDWORKS commission.
One hundred new sound works have been produced by artists from all over the world. Selected by our curators and art institutions worldwide, the artists have been invited to submit a sound work, taking its stimulus from themes evoked in Bruce Nauman's Days, presented concurrently in the lower gallery, as part of our season on sound.
SOUNDWORKS embraces the ephemeral nature of sound, and presents an online platform that doubles as a virtual exhibition space. This site aims to make the works internationally accessible, a place to explore the genre as a medium which is simultaneously inclusive, interactive, and subversive. It includes a wide range of audible approaches by artists who have been working with the medium for many years, as well as artists taking their first venture into the sonic arts.
This commission gave me the chance to return back to sound, use it as a pure medium; a chance to adapt my current video practices. Recent video work has been embracing the natural organic repetitious beauty of the impressionist movement, examining video as textural expressive medium. With this sound piece I wanted to embrace a practice which was prevalent during the late 19th century, the field study, going out on a daily basis, to the same area, studying the surroundings.
The piece consists of seven one minute vignettes, all from 7x seven-minute recordings made over a single week in March, along a river in the Essex countryside. Starting on Monday 26th March at exactly 9:00am, finishing at 15:07 on the Sunday. Each of the seven minute recordings were condensed into one, layering each minute on top of each other.
Firstsite nominated me for the piece.
