Sleepdogs remix Exeter at Lost Weekend – a new three day festival of music, art, ideas and technology, created by the Met Office's Informatics Lab, Kaleider, Exeter Phoenix, The Cavern and Exeter City Council.
Part gig, part-installation, drop in whenever, stay as long as you like.
In Circadial Sleepdogs make field recordings of a city then splice, stretch, loop, pitch and warp them, turning the city into an improvised music made entirely from atmospheric sound – sometimes ambient, sometimes rhythmic, sometimes beautiful, sometimes weird, sometimes recognisable, sometimes not… but always in response to the things they’ve heard and seen on their journey.
It’s about the polyphony of a place; the ghost music hiding within everyday sounds.
Circadial was originally created for Sanctum, and has since been performed at Bristol Old Vic, Wardrobe Theatre, The Station and the National Theatre's Riverstage.
