liminal: Another Poisonous Sunset
Another Poisonous Sunset is a simulation of a musical performance. Six stereo pairs of loud-speakers are set up on the stage area of a conventional auditorium, each pair reproducing a highly edited mix of a group of instrumentalists in the ensemble. Signed sepia photographs are clipped to the music stands of the absent performers and these stands spot lit from above leaving the rest of the stage in darkness. The audience are free to walk amongst the absent band members. As Another Poisonous Sunset is presented and heard as the simulation of a performance, it is important that the rituals surrounding the consumption of concert music are observed, fetishised even, while at the same time being challenged.
