Maia Conran at Kingsgate Project Space

Developing from her research into the disembodied voice, Maia Conran recently completed a residency at Kingsgate Project Space in London, which resulted in an exhibition and performance entitled This island, and its buildings, is our private paradise. she combined enacted and recorded monologues, a computer narrated internet search and sampled voices from found footage with a screenplay co-authored with novelist Yannick Hill. The work examines the possibilities for these polyphonic voices to locate a protagonist and a place.

The Disembodied Voice meets Anna Barham

In September the group met up with Anna Barham to discuss her exhibition at Arcade and her ongoing investigation into the dichotomy of meaning and its translation as various codes – alphabet, sound and image. We discussed her live production reading groups in which malleable interpretations of a selected text were created and activated by the participants' voices and speech to text software.
