4th ought sing raved ink loud

Commissioned as part of the Covid-19: Changing Culture conference hosted by the Centre for Cultural Value

4th ought sing raved ink loud is an experimental work by Fraz Ireland

The house lights come up. As you drift away from the auditorium and out of the doors you allow your ears to freely tune in and out of the conversations of the audience around you. You answer their questions and argue with their interpretations in your mind as you follow out through the foyer and onto the street outside. You’re still inside the art. Carrying the moment with you into your conversations and stretching the edges of the piece into the space and time surrounding it.

Throughout this project I will be inviting you to contribute short voice recordings which will be used to make the artwork. Come to the "Meet our Composer-in-residence" session at 14:55-15:25 to explore an interactive environment that will feature your recordings! There will also be an opportunity to find out more about the project as a whole and ask questions.
