Installations and Events


Frequencies is a live expanded-cinema event using two 16mm projectors with electro-mechanical devices and stereo sound. It is concerned with the sensory experience of the interaction of slowly changing colours of overlapping and flickering projections, and of slow frequency shifts of sound causing beats, harmonics and dissonance between the loudspeakers.

ROOTED OUT 2017 (with Jo Millett) 16mm projection and sound event.

Rooted Out is a projection event that attempts to create a full colour image in 3D from monochrome film of UK and EU flags being waved. Two ukuleles will be played live, with a motorised plectrum through two speakers. The work will teeter precariously on the edge of successfully achieving its aim with a twin projection through a revolving shutter of red and green filters (the Kinemacolor process and 3D without the glasses). The likelihood of faithful colour reproduction is fickle, but as with the question of feeling European and British, it is not a black & white issue but is a question of what you want to see as much as what is constructed.

"... highlight of the night was David Cunningham (a former member of seventies one-hit wonder band/collective Flying Lizards), Rob Gawthop, and Alan Baker, performing a 1977 sound piece from Sinden’s Functional Action series. They each rubbed a couple of pots together and the resulting music was a groove sensation!" Stewart Home (blog/archives/2805).
