Spoken Here: Sounding the site 3

From 7th-11th March 2011 I developed a multimedia installation called "Spoken here", in the University of Sussex Language Centre. A looped film was projected on the ceiling with a series of sound pieces using the languages spoken by staff and students of the Centre. We used as many foreign languages as we could muster we had 35 contributions in 14 different languages. The corridor was turned into a walk-through cinema of woodland visuals and voices.

Some of my favourites pieces from the installation can be played below:

±.pattern.time.memory

Here's the finished version of ±.pattern.time.memory, it seemed to go down well at the first performance. It is, of course, best viewed projected 4 metres by 3 metres or larger.



It was reviewed in the Shoreham Herald by Martin Ward

…'This fascinating and ambitious concert ended with two bold audio-visual pieces. Resurge, with music by Ric Graebner and poetry by Argyros Ioannis, skilfully read by Andrew Branch, combined richly chromatic projected images and pre-recorded music. The theme of literature and its habit of haunting our lives was matched on the screen by Roger Pinnington's vivid semi-abstract explorations of Italian church interiors. Roger Harmar's no less ambitious +/-pattern.time.memory used a wider range of imagery but no text apart from screened phases. Unlike Resurge, the visuals here were possibly a little too diverse and, although brilliant and insistent, their point, and relation to the music, were not always obvious.'
