Sonica 2012 is a Glasgow-wide celebration of world-class sonic art and music to ravish the senses. Sonica is delighted to present part of its programme at CCA, exploring the potential of sonic art through music, visual art, film and new media. Produced by Cryptic in association with hcmff//. For other Sonica 2012 events, please visit www.sonic-a.co.uk.
#UNRAVEL is a ground-breaking, reactive sound installation, through which the audience attempts to unravel the truth about The Narrator’s life by playing records from his collection. The viewer plays a record, which controls a series of customised, self-playing instruments, providing a soundtrack to The Narrator’s story. Just as a real narrator alters the way they tell a story depending on their mood, audience and context, the memories embodied in the installation will distort, evolve and warp depending on external influences.
A year in the making, this project required Aidan Moffat to write 10 short stories with multiple variations of each, to be sound tracked by a total of 160 new musical compositions by FOUND. For Sonica, FOUND are presenting a specially prepared intimate version of the installation.
#UNRAVEL was created with investment from Creative Scotland’s Vital Spark Programme and New Media Scotland’s Alt-w Fund, with support of the Centre for Design Informatics, Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, SWG3 and The University of Edinburgh.
Sonica 2012 is produced by Cryptic.
