Sat 27 June - City of Irisjude

Iris Garrelfs and Jude Cowan Montague build a city. Markets, streets, offices, shopping centres, parks, public transport are all imagined in an improvised soundscape. Using found sound, experimental vocals, dramatic techniques and visceral vocals, Garrelfs and Montague explore ideas of city spaces and investigate the squares and ways of urban life. Garrelfs is intrigued by change, fascinated with voices and definitely enamoured by technology. She often uses her voice as raw material, which she transmutes into machine noises, choral works or pulverised “into granules of electroacoustic babble and glitch, generating animated dialogues between innate human expressiveness and the overt artifice of digital processing” (Wire Magazine). Montague mixes and matches worlds of text, drama, reality, broadcasting and community theatre. She is a vocalist and likes to improvise experimental, playful song.

Jude also introduces her new book of poetry and sketches, Springfield Olympics, about living on a narrowboat in Springfield Marina during the Olympics, 2012. 
In association with Rebecca Feiner's curated mutli-artist urban installation DEN-City.
