Late Works: LOOP

Concept

Four loops by four separate artists are simultaneously, continuously looped for 30 minutes. The loops are projected to surround a group of musicians, who then respond live to the loops with looping sound.

The process is then repeated again with as many sets of artists and musicians as wanted.

Lexicon

/luːp/
• (noun) a structure, series, or process, the end of which is connected to the beginning.
• (verb) form (something) into a loop or loops; encircle.
• (in music) a repeating section of sound material.

In collaboration with:

Specifics

• For the film loops:
- the entire loop must be silent,
- between 5 and 30 seconds long,
- and in 16:9 ratio (1920x1080) (but content doesn’t have to be full screen)

• The filmmakers have one week to create their loop.

• The content of the loop must be entirely original/created for the show (unless the artist’s process is rooted in the use of existing imagery).

• The setup of the projections depends on the room. As long as they fill the musicians field of vision it is ok.

• Musicians don’t have to use a loop pedal.

More information about the artists:

Alice Bloomfield

aka / part of

Working across both traditional and digital mediums, London based Alice Bloomfield’s art embraces human emotion, sex and love through illustrated and animated works. Describing her art as ‘opulent, perturbing and sleazy’, Alice’s visual identity lends its hand to a style reminiscent of Manga with exaggerated body features and cool hues. As an artist, Alice believes exploring as many mediums as possible is important which is why she hopes to experiment with 3D animation in the future: just another medium to add to her extensive list of painting, music video sets, digital projections and more. For Alice, the journey is what really matters; she says stepping out of her comfort zone is a step in the right direction.
