Alan Dunn – Proposal


Soundtrack for a new art school

I propose the gathering, producing and curating of a range of sounds that will ‘soundtrack’ the new art school building. Examining sick-building syndrome, studio soundtracks, private tutorials, quotes from artists and so forth, the mix will be available as download or subtle broadcast within the new architecture. I propose bringing a set of sound files, including Fluxus artist Robin Page speaking about late 1960’s English art school education and some soundworks created by students at Leeds Metropolitan University with the artist Chris Watson. These will be combined with new recordings made within the building and surrounds

Live/sound event for METAL, Liverpool, in collaboration with Bill Drummond and Jeff Young & Moongoose.
