Thursday October 23:
James Beckett - Untitled - (series of sketches for four basses, pedal and mallets)
Among other directions in improvised and composed concerts, James is working with drone. Be that drone of bagpipes, fridges, electric accordions or motorbikes, his emphasis lies on diversity of source. With this live piece for four basses, he will play a series of shorter sketches (as opposed to the durational drone) exciting each instrument with a range of percussion mallets, creating several simultaneous feedback loops.
Coming from a background of installation, sound has come to develop a more central role in his work. This has been a research-based activity with output ranging from radio documentaries to mock ethnic bands, and museum displays documenting the cultural and physiological effects of noise. Together with visual practice he is also a member of the musicians collective, 'N-Collective', as well as freelance curator (on occasion), with a focus on sound.
