The Incidental in London

Open Cities is a live, site-specific performance based upon the live,

real-time manipulation of sounds and images from the streets

surrounding the performance venue. FIRST (AND MAYBE ONLY) PERFORMANCE

IN PHNOM PENH.

For each concert, a microphone and video is placed directly outside of

the venue, gathering ambient noise and passing visuals. The show is

then created entirely from these live feeds without the use of

prerecorded material, remixing and distorting them into experimental

beats and rhythms that respond to specific sonic and visual qualities

of each site.

This process is made possible by software programs designed and built

by David over the past year as part a research project supported by

Sound&Music, one of the UK's leading contemporary music institutions.

Previous performances of Open Cities include appearances at Future

Places (Porto), Novara Jazz Festival (Milan) and Corsica Studios

(London).

David Gunn is the founding Director of Incidental is a creative

organisation specialising in cross-disciplinary creative work that

explores notions of identity, sound and site. In the past 6 years,

Incidental has completed a variety of projects in the UK, Europe, Asia

and the US, with a diverse output including live performances,

largescale installations, software design and site-specific

interventions commissioned by a variety of organisations including

Opera North, Futuresonic Festival, Asian Development Bank, Arnolfini

Gallery, Manchester International Festival, Arts Network Asia,

Fundacao Serralves and The New York Lower East Side Tenement Museum.

Current projects include creation of multi-touch music software app

(FEED) and collaborations with Cambodians artists / musicians to

explore experimental approaches to Khmer culture (Krom Monster, The

Sounding Room).
