Ultima festival 2015
Camille Norment & David Toop
Camille Norment, who is Norway’s entry to the 56th Venice Biennale, began her collaboration with composer and writer David Toop at nyMusikk's resident at Café OTO in London in 2014. The collaboration resulted in a performance at the Biennale. The performance explores the legends, stories and mysteries of the depth of the oceans through sound. It is still being continually developed, and will be performed at Ultima in September.
The Oslo-based American artist Camille Norment’s practice includes performance, installation, drawing and sound. She explores how the body is interconnected with its environment through sound, and contemplates on the power of dissonance to create spaces for new ways of thinking.
David Toop is a British composer, writer and professor of Audio Culture and Improvisation at the London College of Communication. The third edition of his debut book, Rap Attack, has just been released. He has recorded five solo albums since he released Ocean of Sound in 1995.
