Auditory Learning (working title)


We're currently working on a film project with support from MIRIAD and developed with support from FLAMIN and Arts Council England

Building on the pilot project The Brilliant and the Dark, Auditory Learning transposes tactics borrowed from commercial music video production and musical cinema to reanimate out-of-copyright music recordings (1920s to 1940s jazz, blues, folk, and music hall). Through re-enactment, lip-synching, and choreography, the film weaves together musical vignettes excavated from public domain recordings.

This hauntological experiment explores the politics of the beginnings of the recording industry at a time when emerging models of peer-to-peer distribution and collaborative production are urgently problematizing established notions around the authorship, ownership and distribution of culture.

The project will announce the release of newly copyright-expired work into the public domain and will be copyleft licensed – so, like its public domain sources remains free for distribution and reuse in the future.

Ponsonby Press

We've been invited by Ponsonby Press to develop a project for publication.

"The Press' ethos is rooted in an underlying belief in the connectedness of people, things and society. It values the importance of independent thought and action as intrinsic qualities of the social realm. There are countless other words in the dictionary but some useful ones could include: open, hermetic, adaptation, speculation, arbitrariness, relay, delay, persistence, certainty, serendipity, absurdity, and so on."
