Various venues around Barrow-in Furness.
As part of the FON festival 2015 Mark Vernon & Jenn Mattinson premiere a new multi-channel work created for The Hub – an open-air ambisonic sound system in Workington town centre. Over the past year they have collected interviews and field recordings pertaining to circular processes, circuits, loops and all manner of rotating things throughout the region of Cumbria. The material used in the composition of the piece includes recordings of a potters wheel, a launderette, wind turbines, speedway races, a water mill, bicycle wheels, a clock restorer and a tour of the Cranston’s sausage factory where they make the famous spiralled Cumberland ring sausages. This first incarnation of the piece will be diffused through the ‘Hear This Space’ sound system in a specially arranged quadrophonic mix.
Saturday, 1st August, 15:00, Art Gene main gallery space.
