16th December at the Scope: Hardworking Families night with Hardworking Family Nan / Daniel Tully’s ‘… As a Process of Line-Making’

The Spirit of Gravity presents the Scope XVII

The Spirit of Gravity in co-operation with Hardworking Families presents The Scope with Hardworking Family Nan and Realisations of Daniel Tully’s ‘… As a Process of Line-Making’

Hardworking Family Nan
Mutated Ultra-Noise Cello

Hardworking Family Nan is a new duo that takes a cello and a no-input mixer and melds them together into one totalising mass. When the going is good, the two become one, as though the horse-hair bow were reaching directly into the guts of the circuitry. Ever heard a cello harmonising perfectly with harsh lashings of mixer-feedback? No? Well don’t miss it then.

Daniel Tully’s ‘… As a Process of Line-Making’
Experimental Text Score made flesh, several times

Composer and artist Daniel Tully has challenged a number of local performers to interpret his weighty text score ‘… As a Process of Line-Making’. As it’s a complex, beautiful and open-ended thing, we’ve decided to have a few different goes at it, in a few different set-ups. Performers will include some combination(s) of Duncan Harrison, Kev Nickells, Karl M V Waugh, Tom Bench and John Guzek

Plus Lissajous figure projections
