Object Collection presents Robert Ashley's Automatic Writing @ Frontiers Festival
30th March 2014
Object Collection presents Robert Ashley's Automatic Writing @ Cafe Oto
Object Collection perform Automatic Writing by Robert Ashley @ Cafe Oto, London
Object Collection present a live, staged adaptation of Robert Ashley’s seminal 1979 studio composition Automatic Writing alongside a performance of their own New York Girls - an exercise in extremes, and a fanfare for the dispersed. False pretenses, controlled feedback, plagiarism, and precisely-placed things. A performance for objects, voices, instruments, and video, it is developed from Object Collection's March 2012 duo performances in Italy.
"I went toward the idea of sounds having a kind of magical function - of being able to actually conjure characters. It seemed to me that in a sort of psycho-physical sense sounds can actually make you see things, can give you images that are quite specific." – Robert Ashley on Automatic Writing
On a stage strewn with television monitors, video cameras, and dim light, Object Collection invokes these four characters, crafting an environment that aims to heighten the enigma of the original.

Zeros + Ones brings together 14 artists using video, sound and performance to question power struggles in technology. 22 years after Donna Harraway’s publication of A Cyborg Manifesto which launched the Cyberfeminist movement, this show looks at its relevance today in work that celebrates and questions science and technology.
Broken narratives, multiple identities, consumerism, low-fi, CGI, techno, retro, resourced, revamped, personal stories, and the new aesthetic are all present within the featured artists work. These artists come from various European cities and much of the interaction between them takes place over the internet through Skype, email, social networking, and video-file sharing.
