Making Waves: Sonia Paço-Rocchia, Alan Bloor

Sep 9, 2017

Produced by NAISA.

This month: On Making Waves NAISA presents an August 2017 recording of a performance from the Sound Travels Festival of Sound Art with Sonia Paço-Rocchia from Montreal and Alan Bloor from Toronto. They both used saw blades as the focus of their sound exploration. Paço-Rocchia’s performance of Scies used saws automated with solenoids and transformed with live signal processing. Alan Bloor’s performance called Dual Abrasives combined his two projects Pholde and Knurl. It used analog effects treatments of saws.

The Shunt Lounge, London, April 2010

The Shunt Lounge is a performance venue situated in the victorian brick tunnels, which form the foundation of London Bridge Station. It is about to be closed to make way for the foundations of London’s latest tallest building ‘The Shard’ currently under construction. Street level above is already a building site.

The work is exhibited on the 2nd, 3rd and 9th, 10th April. This is during Holy Week, and just after the spring equinox.

It is a work about the beauty of light on the body, and in dark places.
Live performance and voice following the rhythm of the light.
