AN EVENING WITH FOLKLORE TAPES
SAM MCLOUGHLIN & DAVID CHATTON BARKER
This will be a very special Sonido Polifonico Presents evening at Bishops’ House.
The Folklore Tapes’ Sam McLoughlin and David Chatton Barker will be presenting a site-specific performance, focused on the history and folklore surrounding the building, its Tudor origins and the apotropaic marks on the woodwork within.
David co-runs the endlessly fascinating Folklore Tapes label, and is a film-maker and visual artist, as well as a musician specialising in collages of field recordings and live improvisation. Sam incorporates handmade percussion into his sets as well as bowed textures and microphone feedback. Together they make deeply contemplative drone-improv where microtonal meditations, field recordings and scrapings all contribute to highly-charged atmospheres and evocative imagined landscapes.
