Cabin: Codex – The Breath Between Marks

A few weeks ago I was invited to submit a proposal to Duncan of Jordanstone Exhibitions Department for a new piece to be performed at their upcoming Cabin:Codex exhibition. I’m really happy to say that it got the greenlight today!

Here’s the abstract of the exhibition: “Co-curated by Exhibitions at DJCAD and artist David Faithfull, the exhibition showcases over 100 Artists’ Books and multiples selected from the collection of Centre for Artists’ Books at VRC. The exhibition considers two inter-related but opposing ‘landscape’ themes: the Urban and the Feral, and is presented as an open display available for handling by visitors. The exhibition includes a newly commissioned book, TENT, by Paul Noble. There will also be a programme of live works responding to the notions of book and reading.”

On consideration, I came up with the piece The Breath Between Marks, the proposal as follows:

DFyans - TBBM Prop

I should start work in earnest on it on Thursday with a visit to the CAB to start working through the archive to collect source material to be repurposed into the score. It’s going to be a pretty massive project but I’m really looking forward to pushing myself into a different sphere of influence from my usual soundworks in the construction of the score and the piece itself.

Updates and info will be forthcoming as and when.
