Alex De Little
Tracing the footsteps of Laura Grace Ford’s Trinity to St Marys, Alex De Little has made a series of recordings that sonically document the shifting temporalities of Leeds.
This material is the voice of the city; the acoustic imprints of its architectural spaces, animated by the sounds of those that occupy them; sounds that – in all their poetic complexity – speak of the dynamics and narratives at play within the city.
These soundscapes are held in tension with a second series of recordings made inside Convention House where the unique acoustic voice of each room is brought into resonance by the vibrations from the incessant traffic of the York road.
Alex has used these sound materials as the basis for an improvisation that responds to Laura’s work. A recording of this improvisation is here presented in dialogue with Feed the Fires, Tend the Stock as a six-channel loudspeaker installation.
