Buzzard Fabrics bio images AF event

We’re in residence at Audio Foundation this week working on a pair of new performances. Although made in conversation, the two pieces will stand alone. This work-in-process sharing session is an opportunity for you to see some primordial early ideas. We want to share what we’re up to and would value your feedback in a short discussion after the showing.

Wild Fabrics, Antonia Barnett-McIntosh
A solo performance, an experiment. Sitting at the intersection of composition, performance, field recordings, speech, and interview transcription. Hesitations, mistakes, rewinds, stops and starts. Easy chats, serious musings and musickings, flippant remarks, the ums (or is that erms?) and ahs and yeahs… yeahyeah–yeah, the flow, the criss-cross, cutting in-

First Buzzard at the Body, Elliot Vaughan
Loosely hung on a theme of birdhood, Buzzard is an experimental solo vocal concert. Drawing on 60s minimalist composition and 70s sound poetry, a setlist of texts are subjected to transformative processes, gutting them of meaning or stumbling into the sublime. This is a show of unpredictable sweetness and aggression.
Made with support from Creative New Zealand, MAP Ōtautahi Tiny Fest, and Audio Foundation.
