Rough House: Field Recording

Date & Time
10 April 2016

Field Recording

Sun 10th April | 14:00 – 15:00 | FREE
Gordon Douglas, Tom Graham

In Summer 2015, Gordon spent six weeks living in Cambridge with Tom, a member of post-punk band ‘Business Lunch’, and sole producer of the band’s second album. Over the course of the summer, Tom had given himself the task of writing and recording the entire album in the band’s spiritual home, a place all of them had lived at some point, and the site where the band initially started jamming together. All the empty rooms had been converted into recording studios for specific instrumentation, and everything was recorded on to an eight-track tape.

Field Recording is the cassette tape document of the conversation they had at the end of summer, when Tom was about to hand the house over to new housemates. The two reflect on what it means to produce whilst displaced from your scene, ideas of fraternity in the context of their situations, and how best to remember the intangible notion of a friendship.

This event forms part of the Rough House extended programme emmanating from an open-call announced in February. Rough House is an exhibition and public space exploring relationships, temporality and interdependence, involving twelve artists and writers. This project between The Woodmill and The Glue Factory forms a space for the exploration of possible methodologies for collaboration and cooperation.
