Thornton Heath, London
We welcome German artist, composer, cellist Marcus Kaiser
an einem ort – an einem anderen ort (since 2000) / at one place – at another place
Performed by Edward Lucas
an einem ort – an einem anderen ort started in 2000 in Cologne, with the idea of transporting specific space acoustics from one place to another. Each space acts as a filter that changes the material, that erodes it. A performance consists of two parts – separated by a pause – each part is recorded and played back in the next; the first half in the second half, the recording of which will become the basic layer for a future occurrence of the work at another place.
This is the 38th performance of the work by Edward Lucas on trombone. As time goes by, performance after performance, a steady dynamic balance emerges between recently added sounds and older ones as they progressively vanish in the background noise.
is an improvising trombone player holding many associations with musicians in London and beyond. He is co-founder (with Daniel Kordik) of Earshots Recordings – their long running trombone and synth duo led to the formation of the concert series and label for improvised music and field recording works.
produces works oscillating between art and music. “Marcus is a cellist–painter–architect–composer–builder/designer–maker of sound pieces–video artist. He does not juggle these activities – he works on all of them simultaneously as if they were part of some vast rhizomatic assemblage.”(wandelweiser by Michael Pisaro, 2009)
(since 2016) a small cove in South London, where we occasionally come together to play, listen to and share words, sounds and other gems, polished or unpolished. (Named after a small rocky bay littered with gem stones smoothed by the fierce tidal waters of New Zealand South Island).
