Live Instore: Simon Whetham//Seth Cooke//Paul Morgan
December 13, 2014 @ 2:00 pm
As part of a short UK tour, globe-trotting sound artist and field recordist Simon Whetham teams up with two dissenting improvisers; Bristol’s Seth Cooke and Brighton resident Paul Khimasia Morgan.
Activating objects and surfaces with found sounds and actions, Simon Whetham creates a shifting sonic environment that is comfortably disorientating. Simon has been capturing and composing almost primarily with field recordings since taking part in a research trip to Iceland in 2005. He was invited to participate in two residencies at the Art Container in Tallinn, Estonia, the second to compose new work, collaborate with other artists using sound and run deep listening, field recording and composition workshops. This residency resulted in ‘Active Crossover’, a touring exhibition and exchange project.
Seth Cooke is an improviser and sound recordist. His music is frequently location or process oriented and he often works with material happened upon by chance. As a percussionist he plays traps and waste disposal sink. Cooke runs the Every Contact Leaves a Trace CDr label. He co-founded Bang the Bore with Clive Henry in 2009, Place of Safetywith Henry Collins in 2013 and Several 2nds in 2013.
Paul Khimasia Morgan is an improviser, currently working with electronics, zither and the sonification of low voltage. Paul’s music has been released on Absence Of Wax, Engraved Glass, Con-V and Cronica and he curates the Aural Detritus Concert Series micro-festival in Brighton.
“…a weft of mysterious hums and clicks that creeps organically across the intervening space between the speakers and my ears, never quite identifying itself but always offering tantalizing glimpses…” – Brian Olewnik, Just Outside
