Dear all, I’m booking some dates for PETER CUSACK and AUDREY CHEN/MARIA CHAVEZ. PETER CUSACK (UK) Availability: September/October 2014 Territory: Europe AUDREY CHEN/MARIA CHAVEZ (China/Peru) Availability: Between mid April and mid May 2014 Territory: Europe PETER CUSACK PETER CUSACK will do lectures on this tour. Cusack is particularly interested in environmental sound and acoustic ecology. He has examined the sound properties of areas such as Lake Baikal, Siberia, and the Azerbaijan oil fields, and is interested in how sounds change as people migrate and as technology changes. In 1998, Cusack started the « Your Favorite London Sound » project. The goal is to find out what London noises are found appealing by people who live in London.[2] This was so popular that it has been repeated in Chicago, Beijing, and other cities. He is involved in the « Sound & The City » art project using sounds from Beijing in October, 2005. Cusack’s Sounds From Dangerous Places is a project to collect sounds from sites which have sustained major environmental damage. Sites that Cusack is working on include Chernobyl, the Azerbaijan oil fields, and areas around controversial dams on the Tigris and Euphrates river systems in south east Turkey. Cusack’s performances are a central part of the book Haunted Weather: Music, Silence, and Memory (Toop, 2004) by his old collaborator and respected music critic and author, David Toop. Toop investigates the use of environmental sound and electronic instruments in experimental music in his book. AUDREY CHEN/MARIA CHAVEZ Chinese and Peruvian Americans, Chen and Chavez are two female artists ho have been working parallel to one another for almost a decade but have never intersected their work until this year. They are embarking on their first collaboration, joining together their ideas of sound, performance and the depth of their respective experiences. Friction and touch amplified by the body to mouth, strings to wood and the needle to speakers. I hope to hear from you as sson as possible. Regards.
