Clear Spot

Saisonscape: Decay. Ahead of its upcoming concert at Cafe Oto on Saturday 28 November, Art Assembly presents "Decay," the third installment of Saisonscape, which investigates the seasons through experimental music and sonic art. Taking place in autumn, "Decay" reflects on the natural cycle of the season - leaf litter and organic material dropping to the ground and breaking down into one, renewing the soil with a rich and nourishing composition. This programme focuses on artists who use archives of field recordings, folk story and who layer instrumentation, objects and found sound. Sounds, ideas and material mulch into new combinations, providing fertile ground for unexpected work. Featuring interviews with Lisa Busby, Graham Dunning, Kemper Norton and Sarah Angliss. [Repeated Thursday 9am.]
