Haroon Mirza to participate in 'ASSEMBLY' at Somerset House
6 November 2019For the second edition of ‘ASSEMBLY’ at Somerset House, resident artist Christian Marclay curates a series of intimate musical performances responding to the sounds and acoustics of the street outside the building. Working with the unpredictable activity and noise to define a compositional framework, Marclay invites a series of guests to collaborate in bringing the outdoors inside for an evolving series of electro-acoustic performances.
This Friday from 7:30pm, Haroon Mirza will present his response to the project alongside artist and music producer Beatrice Dillon. Using projected visuals and panning sound from numerous external microphones, Mirza will re-spatialise the traffic soundscape using vehicle sounds that enter and leave the room by travelling sequentially from speaker to speaker.
