Cos Chapman. Sunday 19th June 3:30-6:30pm

cosmos1Sound artist, musician and oceanographer Cos Chapman presents an afternoon of drone based prepared guitar and electronics improvisations.

Cos Chapman observes his guitar as if unconscious, under anaesthetic. Laid down and barely touched, distress signals and drones emit from its innards.

The unpredictability and ephemerality of improvisation appeals and for years I avoided recording my performances. Choices about what to use are made on the spot after arriving for a performance – sometimes using less than half of what’s brought. I enjoy collaborating – especially with other art-forms like dance and this extends to the audience who can be asked to choose what equipment used etc.. Often a series of shorter pieces of around 5mins can seem more satisfying that extending an idea for 30min.
