part wild horses mane on both sides: Conduit of the bottomless submundane

An absorbing and tactile installation-performance work from Manchester ritualistic improvisors/sound artists Kelly Jayne Jones and Pascal Nichols aka part wild horses mane on both sides, searching for new ways of experiencing sound while camouflaging the processes.

Tailoring each show to the location, the piece involves bespoke speaker placement, live instrumentation, acousmatic interventions and the subtle deployment of multi-sensory elements, drawing the audience into a bewitching sonic maze. Building upon a core of three looping, simultaneously played tape compositions and a conscious bridling of audio/visual perception, the show’s territory will be mapped in response to each venue’s architecture and acoustics, encouraging participants to explore the space and move through the stageless production generating their own sui generis experience.
