Alexander McDonald at The Silo Cupar Arts Festival

Cupar Arts Festival North Fife.



Alexander McDonald busy at his adjustments amid an installation by Kathy Watts, showcasing the unique acoustic qualities and resonate harmonics of the giant cylindrical space of the silo itself. A recording has been made in the feedback mixer to include spurious sound additions of people present within the silo merging with the hidden frequencies, to be replayed to the space below containing an installation of sugar barcode videos by Anton Beaver.

For all of those who ventured into this space required exploit, the access was via a steep metal ladder through a "mind your head" concrete floor way into relative darkness, compared to my previous visit it posed no problem, this time there were others, quite different to being alone and without external sound.
