"textures" is a live audiovisual performance that uses found objects, field recordings and video samples. each performance is unique in that the material is collected on the spot, then re-composed in realtime.

it is an exploration of granular surfaces, aged objects and deteriorated materials that have been collected because of their rich textures.

materials selected for the piece are man-made items that have undergone sufficient deterioration to no longer be recognizable. these decontextualized objects have lost any signified meaning, usefulness and identity: they are in fact ideally abstract.

the object is re-contextualized within the performance, in an abstract narrative. It is paired with video and audio samples taken from the place the object was found.

each iteration of "textures" is therefore in situ, and location specific.

the result is an audiovisual study of the effect of time on matter: modification, deterioration and, finally, disappearance.

"textures" is a cassette-only release, and so downloads have been disabled. please buy the cassette, but feel free to demo the album here.
