Kate Carr - Heatwave (cancelled)

Sat 24 Oct 2020 - 15:00 to 23:30
Provinciaal Domein Dommelhof, Toekomstlaan 5, 3910 Pelt

The album Heatwave is based on recordings taken over a particularly hot long weekend in London. In 2019 London had experienced several weekends of record high summer temperatures. 

“I live on a very busy intersection and when it is hot everyone winds down their windows and turns up their car stereos. In making this album I was interested in both the serious and also the more prosaic aspects of soundscapes related to climate change, the throbbing summer music, our efforts to keep cool, but also the sense of unease which accompanies these everyday activities in this era of environmental crisis.”

Kate Carr (UK) has been investigating the intersections between sound, place, and emotionality both as an artist and a curator since 2010. During this time she has ventured from tiny fishing villages in northern Iceland, explored the flooded banks of the Seine in a nuclear power plant town, recorded wildlife in South Africa, and in the wetlands of southern Mexico. 

This soundpiece is part of the Listening Program curated by Dominik ‘t Jolle as part of the parcours programme which takes place on saturday 24.10 at Provinciaal Domein Dommelhof and will be performed three times between 15:00 and 23:30.
