Sequence Series: Turn Move Change | Jeremy Young (szilárd, Sontag Shogun) with Daniel Merrill (Dead Rat Orchestra) and Austin Milne (Pop Winds) | Able and Chronicled Sportsman (Poem in 4 Vocal Iterations)
Physical Residency: 21-27 January 2013 | Open Day: Sun 27 Jan 2013, 3-6pm | RSVP
Jeremy Young will be working in collaboration with Daniel Merrill and Austin Milne to compose and construct a sound-poetry opus for tape-manipulated voice, group humming, treated violin, oscillators, sand, slate, boiling water, brick and amplified found earth. This text, a new piece inspired by the sport of jousting, will be read in four different interpretations incorporating performative direction, improvisation, repetition and reversals. The full piece is the piece performed four times, which serves to divert meaning away from the linguistic values of the words themselves in favour of the performative aspect of language in its embodied holistic form, as all works of sound-poetry attempt to do. This residency is a starting point, a chance for Jeremy to workshop the piece as a performance, and to gather research, content, feedback and formulae for an eventual published edition.
Jeremy Young is from Brooklyn, NY. He runs Palaver Music and records under the name szilárd as well as playing with Sontag Shogun and the now defunct group [the] slowest runner [in all the world].
Daniel Merrill is based in London and plays with the Dead Rat Orchestra and Sons of Joy, while curating The Sinful Supper experimental music series at the Victoria Pub in East London.
Austin Milne is a wayfaring Canadian breath machine.
