Description

At the invitation of the feminist sound curatorial collective, Electra, who were in residence at the Wysing Arts Centre from July to August 2015, two scores for speaking were created based on the theme for the year of residencies at Wysing: Karen Barad's concept of the Multiverse

The first score 'A Feminist Chorus at Wysing' was in consultation with the reading group of Electra sound artists resident at Wysing in July 2015, such as Lisa Busby, Irene Revell, Cathy Lane and Holly Ingleton, their choice of extracts from texts significant to them from the group formed the basis of an chorus spoken by visitors to Wysing for the open day of 27th July. Picking up texts distributed around the residency house: on steps and under windows, visitors read aloud as they wandered from point to point around the gardens.

The second score, 'A Feminist Chorus for Wysing Arts', was created with the participants of the Leverhulme Arts Scholars Summer School and performed as a spoken and sung chorus from the windows of the Wysing residency farmhouse. The score was composed of lyrics selected by the scholars from pop songs written by lyricists whose gender challenges the male canon. They ranged from the Raincoats to Nina Simone.
