Itinerant Mind: ReSounding Beijing (audio)
Welcome to the October edition of Itinerant Mind with Morrad+McArthur. Annie Morrad is based in the UK and Ian McArthur is currently based in Chongqing, South West China. Every month Itinerant Mind presents a mix of live telematic improvisations alongside material we have developed through the email and skype conversations that direct our collaborative sound art practice.
This month we document our recent work together at Beijing Design Week. The show this month includes two live improvisations performed in Beijing and sounds generated at our Beijing Design Week sound workshop “ReSounding Beijing”.
The first performance was recorded at BEIJING/BABYLON/BERLIN an event staged by Shanghai based DJ Enno Hytrek (aka Spacemotherload) at DADA, a small Beijing club. The second was recorded at The Factory, a gallery space in Dashilar - a hutong area in central Beijing. On both occasions we were joined by Beijing based bassist, architect, and former zoo keeper Martijn de Geus. We hope to able to announce a new project with Martijn in the near future.
The two performances are mixed with and augmented by found urban sounds by Xie Wenting and Zhang Fan who were participants in the ReSounding Beijing sound workshop. The workshop was held as part of the Australia @ BJDW program at Beijing Design Week 2016.
