Adam Asnan

'Is it possible to capture an image of something that does not exist?' Perhaps not, but what is possible is the reversal; capturing something that did exist, to be presented as an obscurity. Recorded sound (as well as photography etc.) may offer only a rendition of an object that existed before, but as a new, amplified and dislocated form; its truth is concealed and its story is stripped, enabling for its mythologisation.

This being the case, it is possible to apply a recording of one thing to the recording of another, and falsify a connection.For this performance, Adam has specially prepared a selection of sound recordings that may attach themselves to Byrne's photography, despite their disparate or otherwise unrelated nature. Shifting from an emphasis upon the artificial (a cohesion of abstract qualities) to sounds that may enhance or subvert one's 'view into' an image.

Jacques Beloeil

Beloeil is a French composer based in London. His recent album for Entr’acte, Bath of Stars was entirely created from rediscovered cassette tapes found in a shoebox prompting Richard Pinnell of Wire to comment, ‘ Bath of Stars, ignores all current convention, combining a darkly humorous playfulness with a sense of Dada absurdity and no small degree of compositional skill. File under bafflingly interesting’.



Theo Burt/Tim Wright
Bastard Structures presents two works creating opposing extremes of sound and image. Using simple geometric shapes and synthetic sound
Theo Burt and Tim Wright construct formal aesthetic worlds that exercise and distort visual and sonic perceptions.

Theo Burt is a UK-based artist working with sound, video and light. Recent projects have focused on the use of highly consistent relationships between sound and video to create a partial predictability, and the effects of this on perceptions of time.

Tim Wright has been releasing electronic music since the early 1990s on labels such as Mute, Tresor and GPR. His recent audio-video works use light as a means to augment and subvert the spatial and temporal perception of sound.

He has also self-released several small editions of CDR's on his own Meagre Resource label.



"Stroop Anthem 1" is a video piece based on John Ridley Stroop's experiments "Naming the colors of
the print of words where the color of the print and the word are different" and "Reading color names where the color of the print and the word are different", published in the 1935 paper "Studies of interference in serial verbal reactions".
