Performance, Birmingham, 2015
Summertime is my and Springer's take on Gershwin's classic. Taking fragments from the lyrics of the song and chanting them repeatedly we are aiming to give them new breath.
Summertime, An’ the livin' is easy, An’ the livin' is easy, An’ the livin', An’ the livin', An’ the livin', An’ the livin', An’ the livin'... is easy.
Audial experience is paired with the visuals which we manipulate live with the help of MIDI. Repetitiveness of chanting and a score generated with the help of sequencers creates a friction with the light-heartedness of the video material.
Summertime is performed with the artist Matthew Springer.
