EASTSIDE PROJECTS

SOMEWHERE IN THE CROWD THERE’S YOU, 1 March to 27 April 2019

Solo exhibition, ESP Members Show at Eastside Projects, Birmingham

Exhibition Launch: Digbeth First Friday, 1 March, 6–8pm

Melody, harmony, cacophony, beat.

This multi-channel sound installation layers collected vocals, earworm hooks, choral fragments and field recordings, oscillating between synchronisation and discord. Tensions between the solo and the chorus: precarious rhythms, tensions and surges, climaxes and relaxations. Melody broken to a sum of its parts. Considering the ‘group’ as something simultaneously claustrophobic and comforting, embracing and alienating, the work takes its title from ‘Super Trouper’ by the not-so-harmonious-pop-group Abba.

The work will be activated with performance on the opening night, combining fragmented soundtracks and disparate narratives around coming together and breaking apart.

ASSOCIATED EVENTS

FROM THE ARTISTS MOUTH, 2 April, 2pm

Join Freya Dooley and curator Gavin Wade for an informal conversation around the newly opened exhibition Somewhere in the crowd there’s you.

LISTENING PARTY: Freya Dooley with Phoebe Davies and Ashley Holmes, 5 April, 6 - 9pm

Listening Party is a disruption of the exhibition and an invitation to synchronise, with commissioned mixes by artists Phoebe Davies and Ashley Holmes. The event borrows the model of a two-channel silent disco to create a social space for private listening. This Listening Party is a result of ongoing conversations between the three artists around music, sound and sound-tracking: the intimacy of listening as a way to alter or accompany mental, emotional and physical states.

STUDY SESSION, 6 April, 1pm

More information soon.
