The Space of a Door

Multimedia installation with sound by Russell Mills and Ian Walton
Sound by Russell Mills and Mike Fearon
Installed for Futuresonic04 at Urbis Manchester 28th April – 8th May 2004

7 motors (1 RPM), 7 silvered aluminium bowls, copper wire, recycled red bricks, bones, water, ashes, metal, food colouring, oil, petrol, varnish, rusted metal, methylated spirits, turpentine spirits, washing-up liquid, dirt.
Sound: 1 CD player, 3 c-ducer contact microphones, mixing desk, 2 Korg Kaoss pads, amps, 4 pairs of speakers.

Seven ceaselessly turning stones shape seven metal bowls, which in their turn effect new sculptings of the stones. Each round producing small, indeterminate, hesitant scrapings, the sounds of the uneasy symbiosis between the environment and humankind - a reciprocal process of continual transition between flux and fixity, between the ethereal and the enduring. Both aleatoric and predictive processes of sound intervention explore and allude to woven notions of our multiple senses of place, time and consciousness. The future merges present and past at the moment of passing, of revolution. As we anticipate possible futures, the past swells and the future diminishes.
