Dialogues | Experiments with Geography


Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB
Thursday 6th May 2010, 7.30pm

Our eighth Dialogues concert takes a transdisciplinary sidestep into work of several artists who conspicuously use space and place to produce sound.

Jacob Kirkegaard will make his Scottish debut with Sabulation, an audio-visual work based on the so-called 'singing sands' in the deserts of Oman. Matt Rogalsky's performance will activate different spaces in the room using sounds recorded live from inside and outside the building. Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo will present a work which uses difference and repetition to explore the performance space.

Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish artist, based in Berlin, whose installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments: geysers, sand dunes, empty rooms, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself. He regularly presents work internationally, and has released several acclaimed albums on the British label Touch.

Matt Rogalsky is a composer and sound artist based at Queens University, Canada. His work often focuses on exploration of abject,
invisible/inaudible, or ignored streams of information. He performs and presents work regularly worldwide, with recent projects at Diapason Gallery, New York; SoundPlay Festival, Toronto; Festival de Mexico, Mexico City; Casa de las Americas, Cuba; the Berliner Festspiele; and the Barbican, London.

Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo is a band making music that explores detail and difference through repetition and layering. Much of their work involves dialogue with particular spaces and places. Based in Scotland, they have performed and presented works at Le Weekend Festival, Stirling, and the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. They have also performed in a range of unusual spaces, including abandoned military buildings, a lighthouse, a medieval abbey and various locations featuring brutalist concrete architecture.
