UNINSTAL

09–16 May 2010
Tramway, Glasgow

UNINSTAL was a set of events at Tramway that tested out radical ideas with leading local and international artists. A collection of events (performances, films, installations, walks and talks) about sound and listening.

This is how we described UNINSTAL at the time:

Arika’s Part A / taster / precursor to the 2010 INSTAL festival at Tramway that will take place in November: Uninstal will feature events with leading questions that test ideas and take risks. Attempts at answers will come from Taku Unami, Eric La Casa, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Ultra-red, Strickland Distribution, Christian Bok, Craig Dworkin, JLIAT, Loic Blairon as well as the attendant audience.

 

More About

 

WE DO INSTAL. INSTAL’S been going for 10 years.  It’s one of Europe’s leading festivals of risk taking and experimentation in sound, as it meets performance and art: unexpected, unbelievable gigs, events & experiences. INSTAL is changing. It’s moving to The Tramway this November. IN THE MEAN TIME, WE’RE DOING UNINSTAL. It’s a kind of taster.  A preview. Like INSTAL, but maybe riskier. A set of FREE events that test out radical ideas with leading local and international artists: experimental musicians/ writers/ philosophers/ organisers/ poets. Seven events (intense performances and gigs, revelatory films, performed installations, and the like): each a kind of non-closed circle; open-ended, unresolved and incomplete. A collection that doesn’t add up, but always returns to sound, music and listening. Come. And help us figure out where we might go next….
