Mesh is an experiment in psychogeography, collaboration, and sound led by Clay Chaplin. During the month of June 2018, a group of sound artists from Los Angeles, Chicago, and Reykjavik will take residence in a large, isolated house in the southern part of Iceland. Through experimentation, improvisation, and collaboration we will create a new sonic work. Each collaborator is a unique musician, sound artist, and improvisor and will bring their own ideas and influences to the creative process. The instrumentation is diverse and will include laptops, electronics, violas, voice, found objects, hurdy-gurdy, and viola da gamba. We do not have a set structure going into our work together but topical starting points include: droning, repetition, field recording, medieval folk traditions, chant, alternate tunings, acoustics, and a general blending of purely electronic, recorded, and acoustic sounds.
Mesh will perform at Mengi in Reykjavik on Thursday, June 28th at 8:30pm
