RDD

As an offsite component of the Ulster University MFA Show 2016, I performed a series of 45 minute electronic drum and loop station performances alongside a sculptural installation. These took place in the downstairs hall of Redeemer Central Church, an atmospheric and austere space close to the Art School.

I made black sheet screens for the windows to subdue the light. The space was divided by a large black curtain. Drum sounds were played, looped and layered and relayed through a Marshall amplifier.

The black sculpture was a significant presence in the room, intensified by successive layers of drumming.

Double E sculpture with analogue metronome

I joined several pieces of wood together that I had drilled, hacked and otherwise distressed.

One red lamp and long exposures create the impression of the room being bathed in a red, somehow primordial glow.

The assembled, glowing structure appears like some kind of hive ready to crack open to ooze lava.
