Dry Stone

Sansom, M and Hogg, B Dry Stone [Performance]

Full text not available from this repository.


On a freezing cold day in January this year Bennett Hogg and Matthew Sansom set out to explore the small forest near to Allenheads, Northumberland, as part of their residency at Allenheads Contemporary Arts. After some time listening to wind in the trees and the tiny streams that trickle everywhere through the trees in that part of the world, they found an old dry-stone wall (a traditional way to build a wall in Northumerbland and Cumbria by placing stones on top of one another without cement or mortar) and set up two violins to act as resonators for their “Dwarf” vibration speakers (small transducers that turn any surface into a sounding object). This performance documents the development of this system. The duo performed several times as part of an exhibition of work by the Landscape Quartet at the Inter Arts Centre, Malmö, Sweden, 11-12 April 2014.
