‘In the late 1980s I was living on Clarence Road a stone’s throw from DIVFUSE Gallery.

Looking out through the windows of my upstairs flat I made a ten-minute film, Views from Home.

Shot in time-lapse, the film also recorded sunlight passing through the empty rooms while I was out at work. Sax player Alan Wilkinson lived and practised in the flat below, and he unknowingly provided much of the soundtrack.

For this event, a live video of the street plays alongside an adapted version of the original film.

Note:  Views from Home was filmed in super 8mm and completed on video in 2003.’

Robin The Fog is a Cumbrian sound artist and audio producer based in London. He is the founding member of Howlround, a project that creates recordings and performances entirely by manipulating sounds on a quartet of vintage reel to reel tape recorders, with all additional effects strictly forbidden – no samples, no synths, no pedals, no plug-ins. Howlround’s eighth studio album was released in 2022.

Three-Day Residency : Merkaba Macabre [Upcoming]

Residency

24 March 2023 Friday 6-8:30pm

25 March Saturday 6-8:30pm

26 March Sunday 3-7pm

Free entry. [[Photosensitive Warning]]

Merkaba Macabre presents a new audiovisual project that explores colour to sound synthesis for a three-day residency at Project DIVFUSE. The project maps the perceived colour spectrum to the audible frequency spectrum, allowing each color tone to pair with a unique sound tone. These ‘binary tones’ are performed live as quantized patterns across three digital projectors and a 3.1 sound system. Building upon the artist’s previous research in analogue light-based composition, Merkaba Macabre investigates this field in a purely digital process resulting in a triptych audiovisual expanse.
