This exhibitions examines the interface between the visual and the aural through notation, documentation, performance and video/moving image. Each of these aspects are currently being explored from many different perspectives by contemporary composers, musicians, visual artists, and film/videographers.  Its basic starting point is the historical graphic score/‘new’ notational practices of the modernist avant-garde and how sound is captured and communicated.

In January I was very kindly asked to take part in an event called ‘Future Fluxus’, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Fluxus, by organiser, curator and director of Cambridge’s Visualise public art program Bronac Ferran.

Conducting my performance as research, I asked members of the audience to re-work and rethink George Manciuna’s fluxus manifesto. Below is my ‘instruction piece’ and the audience responses which together recreated and documented a contemporary interpretation of Fluxus:
