Night (date of performance)

This performance is part of Performing Home

27 NOVEMBER, 6.30PM - 10PM

A year ago I wrote a performance titled, Night (date of performance), envisioning a 12 hour solo guitar improvisation set about exhaustion and music-making, to be played overnight within The Substation gallery space. The space had a unique charm at night and it was a special feeling to be ending a day off with a programme at The Substation, located fittingly on the end of our busy town center.

Having furthered my exploration with sound and performance, I will attempt to envelope The Substation with a rumbling ambient buzz; a sound that is overwhelming but not extravagant, subtle but ever-present, rugged but not repulsive, and loud but quiet in its own right - one that is hopefully befitting of the space that it is.
