Postgraduate student Neal Spowage has just presented Frozen Venus to delegates at the Music and/as Process Symposium at the University of Huddersfield on 30th July 2013.
Frozen Venus is a performance work that demonstrates six new Plungerphone electronic instruments. It explores them using a series of states that involve grouping power, leadership, control and support. The intention of the performance is to demonstrate how controlling and manipulating others has a dark ambition. It hovers between intimacy and opposition. Not necessarily political, but rather social and humanistic, we project a symmetry where every dynamic component is shadowed by dark comedy.
