This mix of the Morrad+McArthur composition “Restless“ was recorded live over the internet and aired on Wave Farm radio Saturday April 18 2018. The video was cut for our contribution to a symposium of artistic process and practice at Bath Spa University. The symposium is staged simultaneously with the exhibition Documents, Alternatives (#3) at BSAD gallery at Bath Spa University, which is open to the public 20th April – 1st May 2018. The exhibition and symposium are part of the Alternative Document, a project by Dr. Angela Bartram, Associate Professor and Head of Arts Research, at University of Derby.
There are several versions of this recorded now…this is probably the most civilised. Sax (London), drones and guitar (Sydney), streetnoise (Chongqing).
A Lack of Chairs
This video is based on a chance encounter of three sonic assemblages; each of these entities seeks continuity but originates from a disparate place. Originally, the sonic linked themselves together through time, meeting each other through random actions, some of which only will only occur once. These entities have been sourced and gathered from various situations located from London to Sydney, and in this incarnation, are meeting together in a middle ground; the situated context of the video. This ‘meeting’ is a reflection on the working methods of both practitioners.
This video is part of the Documents, Alternatives #3 exhibition curated by Ang Bartram at B-Side Gallery (Bath Spa University): 20 April-11 May 2018.

Itinerant Mind has a new timeslot on Wave Farm
. Hear us three hours earlier from this month – We’ll be playing our mix of improvised telematic noise at 11:00am Eastern US time every third Saturday of the month. That’s good news for listeners in Australia.
Listen back to this month’s broadcast of Itinerant Mind on WaveFarm Radio WGXC90.7 FM by Morrad+McArthur which aired on April 21. “Telemosis” takes in live and telematic improvisations, work related to our involvement with the most recent Documents, Alternatives (#3) symposium and exhibition in Bath, and some of our ongoing Project Anywhere research outputs.
