Strange Attractor

1 April – 30 April 2011

A residency developing sound and visual possibilities through live events, collaborative performances and video documentation.

Strange Attractor is a dynamic multi-dimensional series of collaborative ventures between five artists, Anthony Kelly, Danny McCarthy, Irene Murphy, Mick O’Shea and David Stalling and guests exploring sound-based cross-disciplinary relationships to create non-verbal communication.

Strange Attractor, began in November 2010, with a highly successful series of monthly four hour durational sound performances, within the gallery spaces inviting, international guests including David Toop & Mary Nunan, Stephen Vitiello, Alessandro Bosetti and Rhodri Davies. The performances have attracted large audiences who have experienced, with the artists developing relationships between sound, visual art, music and choreography.

This collaboration now takes its form in a month long residency in Crawford Art Gallery where the artists will work in the galleries both as a group and as individuals creating components to form an evolving instrument that the listener/viewer can explore resulting in an experience that offers multiple points of entry for the audience.

The residency is a platform for the exploration of ideas and process with open-ended outcomes thus creating sound and visual possibilities using sound installation, still and moving images, video documentation with ‘informal’ performances and live events in the various spaces of the Crawford Art Gallery.
