Splintstallation is a sound-based, site-specific project designed especially for Articulate's project space by the Splinter Orchestra.
The Splinter Orchestra is a large-scale ensemble working in improvised experimental sound and music, and that is developing its current interest in sound installations. Splinters involved in this project include Prue Fuller, Laura Altman, Mel Herbert , Bonnie Stewart, Andrew Fedorovitch, Jim Denley, Cor Fuhler, Peter Farrar, Solly Frank, Mimi Kind, Shota Matsumura, Axel Powrie, Tony Osborne, Sonya Holowell, Rhys Mottley, Luiz Gabriel Gubeissi, Adam Gottlieb, Alex Spence, Weizen Ho, Jack Stoneham, Charlie Sunborn, Marco Cheng, Hannah Kim, Ruby Everett.
It will use the two weeks in Articulate as a residency during which the group will pursue site-specific group improvisation and homogenous sound installation works to which the public will be invited during Articulate’s normal opening times. Specific performance events will be advertised here.
Splinter’s practice draws from acoustic ecology, ‘psychogeography’ and phenomenology to explore the idea of listening as an active practice. Its aesthetic favours subtlety, quietude and unusual sound sources. More recently Splinter has developed an interest in sound installations. Many members have created their own self-playing instruments and sound devices, which can be dispersed around the room at rehearsals and incorporated into the groups rehearsing and playing.
In June 2017 members of the group organised a Splintstallation at Tempe Jets (where it rehearses weekly). This installation used the many rooms and spaces of the building, and unlike other sound installation exhibitions, the individual artworks were made to coexist and compliment others, to create an immersive spatial sound environment.
