Composer and new media artist Daniel Figgis presents the latest in a series of site-specific works situated in Marlay Park on Sunday the 27th of November between 10AM and 4PM. It consists of six fantasy movies, shot in the environs of Marlay Park, and projected simultaneously on all available surfaces of the Orangery (in the Regency Walled Garden). Here is how Figgis described the work in a recent interview:
THE BATTLE oF SPEEDS -phase 1 explores how we have listened to and enjoyed recorded music down the years, investigating how musical content has always been informed by recording technology and playback media. I am particularly interested in looking at the limitations thus imposed and the long-term archival and experiential possibilities.
The work consists of six recompositions each soundtracking a short video piece shot in Marlay Park boathouse. The recompositions reference different playback media. The event takes place in the Orangery, Marlay Park on 27 November between 10am and 4pm. Family tickets are €5 and are available from tickets.ie.
