The idea of the residency to explore how Peter Cusack can use field recordings in performance, both as a soloist and with other performers. The intention is to leave the recordings recognisable so that their information content remain significant but to make them flexible enough to play with other instruments (guitar) or performers, mostly through improvisation. Spatiality, probably 4-channel, will be important plus developing a system for quick playback where a good range of recordings is easily available at one’s finger tips. Technically Peter Cusack has been using an iPad to control a sampler in his computer and would like to use this as a starting point. He is also keen to find ways of triggering visual images with the same system. The mixture of field recordings and still images has long been an interest and it would be good to make it performable. He hopes that one or two Brussels musicians/sound artists would like to experiment on a few occasions, perhaps leading to a performance at the end of the residency.
