“In Conversation” and Performance Event: Danny McCarthy, and Anthony Kelly and David Stalling (Farpoint Recordings)


Dates:
Sat Jun 01, 2013 14:00 - Sat Jun 01, 2013

Location:
LONDON, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Danny McCarthy
The Memory [box] Room


The Memory Room is a project by the Cork-based multimedia artist Danny McCarthy, whose pioneering art practice explores a combination of visual and auditory experiences. This new work consists of an ongoing series of installations in conjunction with a new book and CD published by the Irish sound art label, Farpoint Recordings. The project is curated by Anthony Kelly.

Events:
Opening: Publication Launch and Performance Event:
WEDNESDAY 22 May 2013 | 7:30-9:30pm | FREE – reservation ticket required:
www.memoryroomlaunchandperformance.eventbrite.com
With The Quiet Club (Danny McCarthy and Mick O’Shea) and special guest, David Toop.

“In Conversation” and Performance Event:
SATURDAY 01 June 2013 | 2:00-5:00pm | FREE – reservation ticket required:
www.memoryroomconversationandperformance.eventbrite.com
With Danny McCarthy, and Anthony Kelly and David Stalling of Farpoint Recordings.


Through the use of personal materials gathered from his past and by using other related ephemera, the artist seeks to reach back in time on a 'psycho-sonic' journey, re-establishing old connections and reviving random fragments of lost memories and locating them in the now. This is achieved through the use of sounds, text and found objects that are installed in specially chosen locations throughout the space.

While these explorations may often connect specifically with aspects of McCarthy’s youth and early adulthood in his home-town of Mallow, Co. Cork (his father’s life as a blacksmith/farrier, nights spent playing rock-and-roll in the local dance-hall, early forays into improvisation), there are also meditations of a less specific and more abstracted nature. These are fleeting and often loosely threaded together, but always accessible, thus encouraging people to explore their own inner soundscape.

From 22 May until 07 June, the exhibition space at SoundFjord, London will play host to The Memory [box] Room, a further exploration and reconfiguration of the themes from this evolving project. Residing ‘memories of place’ and past histories caged within the structure of SoundFjord will mesh and play alongside the gentle reverberations of this latest, and unique, instalment of The Memory Room.

The Memory Room project, which had its first airing at Hilltown New Music Festival in 2010, is scheduled to travel to The Room (Turin, Italy) during late 2013.

About The Memory Room publication:
A new book, published by Farpoint Recordings accompanies The Memory Room installation. This book and 3” CD extend the experience of the installation itself, a further creative layer that can be taken away and absorbed by the viewer/listener at their own pace and in their own personal circumstances. Colour, and black and white photographs, drawings, and layers of text printed onto papers of varying opacity, read in combination with a sound composition contained on the CD, bring McCarthy’s ideas into the realm of the tangible.

The Memory Room book and CD is available from SoundFjord on the opening night and throughout the duration of the exhibition, as well as from Farpoint Recordings (www.farpointrecordings.com)
