Rebecca Wilcox & Hannah Ellul - "Seasonal Bodies" cassette
- Sound Clips
Two live performances using voice, synthesised sounds and manipulations of overhearings in everyday places. Most of the sourced sounds come from close to hand: objects, accidents, or routines. And from the body as it rubs, carries, plays, waits, dawdles with its surroundings. The voices are chatting, syncopating, trying to change position, getting in a mess.
Rebecca Wilcox lives in Glasgow and works with writing, audio and performance, often using voice as a tool. She's interested in apperception, infrastructures and the poetics produced between sensory engagements and the written and spoken word.
Hannah Ellul is a Glasgow-based musician and artist. She makes music as part of Human Heads and White Death. She is also the co-founder of Psykick Dancehall.
Together they have produced recordings and performances for BBC Tectonics Festival (2021), Takuroku (Cafe Oto, 2021), Radiophrenia (2020), and Tone Glow (2021).
'...a strange and lurid journey into manipulated audio captured seemingly from the most mundane of sources....It is difficult to imagine what the original context is but it seems to no longer matter as their complete and utter transformation is all that exists now.'
- Lars Haur from On The Fringes of Sound
