Composite: Feedback is a multimedia showcase and live archiving event curated by Mercy, mixing together spoken-word performance with live sampling, notation, analogue processing, and projection – all in one self generating feedback loop. A beautiful and absurd experiment, where the performers and array of interfaces are thrown into a productive conflict.
The event is split into three sections, beginning with short talks and performances, followed by a feedback work-out, pushing the performers into a state of continual improvisation. Finally the Annexe will be left to perpetuate itself as a throbbing artifact of degenerating feedback material.
Featuring poets Steven Fowler, Hannah Silva and Nathan Jones, and writer/artist Mark Greenwood. With video design by Sam Meech. This event is part of the Manchester Weekender.
This is a Cornerhouse MicroCommission, supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
