Performances by João Orecchia and Joseph Suchy at DKP (Parkwood) 18 – 23 July

David Krut Projects (Parkwood) will be hosting an experimental sound performance and installation for one week only. This inspired event aims to create an experience within the space that also invites audience interaction.

 Performances by João Orecchia and Joseph Suchy will take place twice daily from Monday through Friday. Please join us on Saturday, from noon, for a meet and greet session with the artists. They will be talking about the project and welcome audience engagement, as well as questions and conversation, throughout the week. Please see below for more details.

A site-specific installation with intermittent performances by João Orecchia and Joseph Suchy. From Monday 18 July, 2011 to Saturday 23 July, 2011 João Orecchia and Joseph Suchy will be experimenting with spatial relationships of sound. By exploring potential combinations of sound making objects from musical instruments to self-built circuits to found objects and methods of sound manipulation, the two will be attempting to find the point where an auditory environment and a physical landscape and a new form of dynamic, living musical composition cease to be separate constructs and form a holistic viewer experience to mirror the artists’ views on sound.

Each day Orecchia and Suchy will adjust and rearrange objects and speakers in the space, searching for sonic relationships. They will perform twice a day for one hour at a time. At the end of each performance they will have created a sonic and visual landscape that will stand until the next performance.

 

Performance times:

18 – 22 July: 16:00 – 17:00 and 18:00 – 19:00

23 July: 12:00 – 13:00 and 14:00 – 15:00

 

João Orecchia is an artist and musician based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Focusing on alternative sound approaches, he has been exploring ideas of randomness, composition based on source material from field recordings and the effect this can have on an audience’s perception of space or image. Prior to Johannesburg, João spent several years in Berlin, Germany, where he composed music for theatre, film and dance performance.

 Joseph Suchy is a German composer and musician based between Berlin and Cologne. Composing for film and theatre, he has become known for his open approach to working with sound and composition, weaving guitars and electro acoustic signals into non-linear, fragile sound sculptures. Suchy evades the categorizations of contemporary modern music, giving his listeners carte blanche to dream.
