Freya Dooley and Cinzia Mutigli
27 October – 2 November 2014
(events and performances – October 29 and November 1)
On Record is a celebration of vinyl and the pace, mood and painstaking editing process of the mixtape. Freya Dooley and Cinzia Mutigli have invited artists making audio work to experiment with compilation, words and sampling with a DIY approach. On Record features newly commissioned sound works and performances by artists who use analogue processes.
On Record artists include Anat Ben-David, Robert Bidder, Matt Cook, Stabbing Les, Richard Huw Morgan, Ian Watson and Jacob Whittaker.
Throughout the week, Freya and Cinzia invite the public to share their homemade or collected musical memorabilia in the project space and reminisce with them about teenage kicks and the angst of chewed up cassettes. On Record is a social space for shared listening, as well as somewhere to flick through DIY zines, lyric sheets and artist records. Mugs of tea aid conversation about the sounds, objects and collections. Look out for artist performances and events on Wednesday October 29 and Saturday November 1.
Freya Dooley and Cinzia Mutigli are a collaborative duo who make text, sound and performance works that use personal memories of pop music and culture to experiment with words, rhythms and repetitions. They use lo-fi and analogue processes which hint at the history of pop culture to which they relate and allow them to ponder a slower pace of communication.
