ONLY CONNECT FESTIVAL OF SOUND 2015:
Årabrot feat. John Doran
SATURDAY 6 JUNE
BLACK BOX TEATER
In this performance lecture, Camille Norment and David Toop contemplate the mysteries of the deep sea, riding through waterways of legend, histories, and currencies of interconnected peoples, through sound.
Norment and Toop started working together at nyMusikk’s artist residency at London’s Café OTO in 2014. Their collaboration continued with a performance piece that will be presented at the Venice Biennale in May co-produced by nyMusikk, OCA and Ultima.
American-born and Oslo based, Camille Norment’s practice spans performance, installation, drawing and sound. Her work explores how the body is connected through sound with our environment, and reflects upon the power of dissonance to carve out a space for new, affirmative thinking. She performs solo, with other musicians in selected projects, and with her ensemble, the Camille Norment Trio, consisting of Vegar Vårdal (Norwegian hardanger fiddle), Håvard Skaset (electric guitar), and Camille Norment (glass harmonica).
David Toop is a composer, author, curator and Professor of Audio Culture and Improvisation at the London College of Communication. He has published extensively. His first book, Rap Attack, is now in its third edition. Since the publication Ocean of Sound in 1995 he had recorded five solo albums, including Screen Ceremonies, Pink Noir and Spirit World and published Exotica: fabricated Sound-scapes in a Real World.
