I’ve contributed a sound work to Tom Mudd‘s CONTROL Installation which will be at Cafe OTO Project Space from 9th-13th September. It’s a really interesting work and features a great array of artists. More info on the installation:
“CONTROL is an interactive installation exploring the relationships between artists, music, and musical artifacts. It attempts to call attention to the role that the musical artifacts play in developing musical ideas. A single dial is connected to a single speaker, but the relationship between the two is not fixed; it flits between a range of possibilities composed by a diverse range of artists. Visitors are invited to use the dial to make sounds, and to thus explore the links between their actions, the limits of the dial, and the musical ideas embedded in the software by the artists.”
Quartet performance with Graham Dunning, Ingrid Plum and Colin Webster as part of the Sonic Arts Forum event at New River Studios, London on 25th July. We’ll be playing through their 8 channel system so it should be fun. Lots of other multichannel works being played including pieces by Elaine Radigue, Ivo Malec, Xavier Garcia and more.

I’m doing a expanded/extended version of my Intimate Sound System performance at Toynbee Studios in London. It will take place in the incredible Court Room at Toynbee Studios and will feature a larger number speaker cones that cover the whole space. Should be a lot of fun. The event is organised in conjunction with Artsadmin. (Photo above by Andrew Ostler)
Info about The Intimate Sound System at Toynbee Studios:
“London-based sound artist John Macedo conceived The Intimate Sound System after spending more than a decade performing through large sound systems at excessive volumes. The work represents a move towards a more tangible, spatial and intimate experience of sound. It explores the essential constant of electronic music – the speaker.
The Intimate Sound System approaches the speaker for what it is, the bridge between the electronic and acoustic worlds. It is treated as not only an emitter of electronically-generated sound but also as an acoustic resonant object and sound generator all of its own.
This performance of The Intimate Sound System has been conceived specifically for the Court Room at Toynbee Studios and places the audience at the centre of the work, making them an instrumental part of the performance.”
