Morrad + McArthur

Unheard Music

Unheard Music from a series titled: Conversations With a Stranger.

Conversations With a Stranger incorporates two bodies of work which run in parallel with each other. On one side there are prints titled Unheard Music the other side is live improvised saxophone playing. They both speak of voice and dialogue. This element of Unheard Music takes the form of two separate sections that change and run through this exhibition. One section refers to a historic situation and the other reflects/relates to sound and images produced by Ian McArthur. 

Encounter

by Annie Morrad

‘Encounter’ is an analogy for how knowledge is transformed through observation of one species by another. This artwork, titled,  ‘Encounter’, documents my experience of another species; a migratory bird (a Canada goose). The observation is then transferred to the viewer via an information platform.

Artist Biography

Annie Morrad and Ian McArthur live at opposite ends of the planet. They compose and play collaborative sound work and live performances through the use of digital software Mixlr and Skype. Morrad (London) and McArthur (Sydney) began working together in 2014 exploring their interest in sound art, rhythm in the urban environment, improvisation, jazz, crowds and the city.

During live events McArthur broadcasts electronic sounds, field recordings and live mixing. Morrad plays live improvised alto and tenor saxophone against these. For their recorded sound work the starting points vary from being concept driven to ‘I’ve got this idea…’.
