Vengeful Ghost

Vengeful Ghost

 

Vengeful Ghost is an immersive sound performance exploring dialogues between the electric guitar and physical space. This constantly evolving collaborative work, informed by artists from Derek Bailey, Steve Reich and Christian Marclay to Glenn Branca, Sunno and Janet Cardiff, blurs the lines between performance, installation and sound sculpture, honouring the electric guitar's unique outlaw status, while displacing it in search of new shapes. In every new location, the work is re-imagined and re-evolved in negotiation with its environment.

The project's first phase took place at a week long R&D residency at Snape Maltings, UK in November 2019 with my collaborators Alli MacInnes (guitar), Lewis Amar (guitar) and Lia Mice (electronics/ spatialisation) which concluded with an open session in Snape Maltings' iconic Britten Studio. 

A second week-long residency followed at Snape maltings in September 2020 which was documented by filmmaker John Fensom. The film and interview material featured in the Digital Festival of New, Feb 27th 2021.

In September 2021, we were invited by curator Kathy Batista to create an iteration of the piece at Sevil Dolmaci Gallery in Istanbul. We were joined by noise-makerNick Burge.
