Phasmid Studios/Melbourne University/VCA : artist in residency
Roger Alsop at Phasmid
During his residency, Roger has worked on two projects: the Acoustic AV Laptop and Sounding Finnegans Wake.
"In my creative work I explore the relationships between space, intention, and technology, and the intersections between creator, performer/presenter/presentation, and audience".
"during this stay a great deal of work was done that could not have been done anywhere else. The studio is possibly considered more as a residence for visual artists, but as a sound artist I found it offers many unique opportunities. The main studio room has reverberation characteristics that I have not found anywhere else. I was fortunate to be able to work with three other artists, a violinist, a clarinetist, and a dancer, in the space in the creation of new works. To see the look on the face of each musician as they entered to space was a delight. Their joy at hearing how the space responded to their instrument and performance, and the sonic opportunities offered, lead to new and exciting creative expressions. The works done in the space are currently being edited and will be available here. I am very much looking forward to returning to Phasmid for a longer time, to further explore what this wonderful, unique space has to offer."
