LYSN Ensemble, Hilary Jeffery (NL/UK)
A new collaboration combining live music inspired by mappings of the OFFLOAD
festival locations and online traffic on the OFFLOAD website. Making visible and audible the systems and networks at play within the real and virtual, the physical and the ephemeral.
OFFLOAD has commissioned Hilary Jeffery to compose new graphic scores
for LYSN, providing local musicians to play the scores.
Hilary Jeffery – Trombone and Tromboscillator
Tom Bugs – Bugbrand devices
Liz Purnell – Alto Trombone
Paul Bradley – Electric Guitar
Will Plowman – Bass Guitar
Sarah Moody – Cello
Chipper – Cello
Andy Keep – Electronics
Alan Burgess – Sound Engineer
Hilary’s scores are conceived as maps for the performer to explore based on the idea that music notation relates to actual sounding music in a similar way as maps do to the geographical areas they represent. In this new work the maps will be constructed based on information-maps from activities in the OFFLOAD sites including records of the flow of people, traffic, water, and electricity between and through these physical spaces.
To accompany the music, designers Philip O’Dwyer and Ed Holroydhave created generative visuals that respond to the behaviour of users of the OFFLOAD website during the course of the festival.
