Tacit or Loud: where is the knowledge in art?
Symposium and festival for artistic research
Nov 16-Dec 3

Dec 1
Knowing "I"?

Catherine Laws

Roger Marsh: Touch and Go (2014)
An impossible idea.
The performer has never seen a piano before.
She sits down at the instrument without fear but with a degree of curiosity. 
Amazingly, she seems to be able to play it quite well. 

Paul Whitty: under and under and under and under and under or why didn't you tell me the first time? (2014)
A series of misunderstandings, misreadings and misplaced events.

Annea Lockwood: Ceci n'est pas un piano (2002), for piano, video and electronics.
This piece, referencing Magritte’s famous surrealist painting, invites us to consider the nature of the piano: its history and identity, sonic and cultural. Lockwood invites the performer to explore the interior of the piano, as well as to play the instrument more conventionally. However, this is entwined with a recorded text, fed through a transducer inside the piano, in which the pianist exposes aspects of her relationship with the instrument: the performer’s voice, entwines around the musical sounds, increasingly merging into them before eventualy disappearing. The piece was composed for Jennifer Hymer, but Catherine Laws has recorded her own text for use in her performances.
