CCA, 350 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow
Wednesday 26th November 2008, 7 - 9pm

We are privileged to present the première of new work from Rob Kennedy followed by a discussion with the artist. The three video works were born out of a series of collaborative projects working with composers Peter Dowling, Giles Lamb, Martin Parker and Sue Tompkins.

The emphasis in each of the works is the desire to integrate ideas and methods of improvisation into the video and sound production process. This evolving collaboration and dialogue continually shapes, distorts and then reshapes the direction of the work. Steering away from a reliance on a single directive, this project draws on the experience of each of the individual composers who have a background in improvised music ranging from free jazz through to electro-acoustic and vocal performance.

Each work has at its starting point a need to form some kind of dialogue with the norms and conventions of television production in order to understand, adapt and re-define these codes into a grammar that can subsequently be used to suggest other readings, other outcomes, other problems, than those previously prescribed.

This event is free, but places are limited. Please book a place early to avoid disappointment by emailing: rsvp@mediascot.org
