Sandra Gibson, Luis Recoder & Daniel Menche

A new collaborative work developed along with US musician Daniel Menche, using four projectors to envelope the gallery space in light and darkness. Luis Recoder and Sandra Gibson create films and performed film installations of gracefully shifting abstractions, flickering geometry and real, honest beauty. Looped film, created without the use of a camera, is gently coaxed by hand through investigations of pure colour and form with the aid of water, glass and mist. For KYTN they developed a new collaborative work, using four projectors to envelope the gallery space in light and darkness.

Read

The piece has been developed with Daniel Menche, a US musician whose approach to sound shares startling similarities to Luis and Sandra’s approach to light and film; pure sound is born of and mediated by the body and its interaction with objects, creating music with real human and emotional depth and some pretty wild performances. Sourcing sound live from his own heart, lungs or larynx, or from contact with natural elements, a stone on glass, wind or water, Daniel can create a towering vortex of noise, fizzing with dynamic thrills and produced with a post-Iggy raw physical intensity.
