Anna Schimkat Performance of 'Wind' / by Claire Farrell

Wind' performance by Anna Schimkat

Longbridge, Birmingham, 2014

In 2014 German artist Anna Schimkat performed 'Wind’ at the LPAP | SPACE during her 3 month residency. The work is described as ’a collection of recordings of wind from around the world which have been merged into a composition. The recordings have been made in Italy, Syria, Germany, France, Canada, Spain and Great Britain - the roaring interference noises are the same but the reference to their point of origin gets lost with abstraction. The primarily “unintentional noises” hover between musical arrangement and a collage of sound.’
