Friday, 1.00 pm
Come to the Forest this Friday and treat yourself to a live performance of ‘I am sitting in a room’ by our very own Mr Stephen Patterson. One of composer Alvin Lucier’s best known works, the piece involves Stephen recording himself narrating a text, and then playing the recording back into the room, re-recording it. The new recording is then played back and re-recorded, and this process is repeated. Tthe effect is that certain frequencies are emphasized as they resonate in the room, until eventually the words become unintelligible, replaced by the pure resonant harmonies and tones of the room itself.
Intrigued? Come along and find out for yourself
The Forest would also like to point out that the photo is not of Mr Patterson
