Fortress for 3 musicians
AWC play a ‘Ouija instrument’ – this utilises the shadows of the performers hands to trigger field recordings, control sound synthesis, and re-process the performances of the acoustic musicians. This in turn acts to mediate between the world created by the score and the world created by the Fort.
Fortress for 3 musicians explores the intersection between the musical territory generated by the scores and the physical and political territory created by the fortress. It does this by interchanging the musical procedures of territorialisation, which include modulation, sequence and repetition with documentary processes of listening and recording, responding to the historical effects of the presence and intentions of Newhaven Fort.
