Bishi & Neil Kaczor
The Winds of Fate
Thursday March 10th
Full-length film documentation of the live performance of In Sleep at Guy's Chapel London in October 2014. Commissioned by the Science Gallery London for their Frequencies Season, In Sleep is a collaboration between the singer Bishi and the composer Neil Kaczor exploring the rhythms and landscape of sleep. With the help and guidance of Professor Paul Gringras and the team at the Children's Sleep Medicine Dept., Guy's & St. Thomas' Hospital, Bishi's brainwaves were recorded and analysed whilst asleep. This data was then further sonified by Neil Kaczor to form the basis of the electro-acoustic framing of the central setting of Shakespeare's Sonnet No. 43 by Bishi.
The performance feaures live VJ manipulations by Noriko Okaku of films by Susan Aldworth and Barney Quinton.
