Very disappointed to have to postpone the VERZ and AME concerts that Ryoko Akama and I have been planning for the past few months. Unfortunately train and flight cancellations has made going ahead impossible. We will reschedule the concerts as soon as we can.
verz returns to Hundred Years Gallery on March 2nd. Ryoko Akama and Phil Maguire perform While Listening, by Thomas Martin Nutt (featured on VI007, dear martin). Guests Sonic Luz (Klaus Filip/noid) will perform with DIY optical synthesisers.
UK based Japanese sound artist Ryoko Akama realises While Listening, by Japan based British sound artist Thomas Martin Nutt. Perceptions converge, sounding objects crossfading passing cars and sounds of the outdoors.
“This is a collection of words and phrases that have become important to me as a direct result of engaging in the writing and actualising of text scores. The scores focus on the process of engagement with learning another language, divorcing sound from meaning and meaning from sound.” – Thomas Martin Nutt
Available on C60 cassette (edition of 40) and download.
