A duo performance by Jennifer Walshe and Neil Luck of changeable meaning, flexible proportions, unpredictable outcomes...

 

An experiment in technological occultism. J&N use arcane and modern sound recoding technology, projections, voices, objects and texts to divine meanings, messages, and narratives from the detritus of everyday informational noise. 

The audience is invited to experience the performers dredging gnomic readings of real and artificial matter from new and old words, deep audio files, and personal belongings.

WACK have performed live at Cafe Oto, Iklectik, BBC Radio 3, Resonance FM.

Both Walshe and Luck are ludic composers, meaning that they will play on, and play with, whatever is at hand... Jointly and separately, they are teasing out the definitions of what performance might be and what stories might be told by doing so. By creating these extensions of what we understand as performance and the technologies that underpin them, means that what Walshe and Luck seek to do is find links and narratives between whatever formats they present...

...Walshe and Luck's heroic performance... echoes and presents the mess of life and the desperation to connect, to only connect.
