Graham Lambkin and Jason Lescalleet began their collaborative endeavors back in 2008 with the release of their much acclaimed The Breadwinner— a work which cracked open the artistic potential of mundane and commonplace circumstance, part of their triptych on Erstwhile including Air Supply, and the September release of Photographs— a monolithic reappraisal of formative place and event. Pairing Lescalleet’s renowned architectural rendering of sound-as-physical form with Lambkin’s skittish, oft-bizarre approach to stage performance, this duo have pushed the aesthetics of their collaboration to extremes.
Using sung and electronically generated sine tones, room acoustic phenomena, and recordings, Seth Cluett’s live performance challenges boundaries between personal and communal listening. Exploiting the extreme juxtaposition of small bare loudspeakers and large subwoofers, this new work is tensely suspended between full body immersion and brittle, sparse timelessness.
