Soundings Carlisle

Studio performance, Carlisle, UK

March 2002

Continuing as an exploration of our experiences in remote or crowded public spaces, in this performance we used recorded sounds from streets etc during a 5hr action behind a muslin screen and using muslin strips to create a private environment. We covered and uncovered each other with the muslin strips before hanging them in the space, so that during the performance we became visually merged with the environment we were creating. We printed each strip with a string of letters in response to listening to the sounds we had recorded
