Performance: Noah Angell - In a cell lit by singing fireflies

Hannah Collins

29 July 2015

Wednesday 29 July
7.00 - 8.00pm

Transforming the Artists' Studio into a space of collective listening, Noah Angell guides us through an auditory cinema of desire, distance and bodily rhythm.  Featuring ethnographic field recordings from Papua New Guinea, Bulgaria, France, Mississippi and more, Angell's new lecture-performance looks at love songs transmitted via bird and insect messengers, prison songs where the yearnings of the incarcerated fail to reach their loved ones and maternal resonances of bass immersion as exemplified in recordings of gongs.

Noah Angell was born in the United States in 1980 and lives and works in London. Recent exhibitions and events include: From home movies to Homs at Birkbeck Cinema, London (2015); Crying in the ethnographic field recording and home recordings: first iteration at The Green Parrot, Barcelona (2015); Home Recordings: first iteration, noshowspace, London (2015); Anomalies & nonrepresentative instances in the ethnographic field recording, Duke University, North Carolina(2015); The Politics of the Inaudible, Open School East, London(2014); Tertulia, Arnolfini, Bristol (2014); Right to Silence, Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam(2014); and the solo exhibitions Noah Angell FILMS: 2006 – 2012, KARST, Plymouth (2013) and Noah Angell: Film Works, Oksasenkatu 11, Helsinki (2011).
