Amy Cutler discusses her sound work with pedagogies of nature, from her TV opera Nature’s nickelodeons to tape releases and video jams. Also features a Zoom species sing-along.
For this online event, Cutler will be using the idea of ‘karaoke’ to investigate a way to deconstruct and collectivize the found sounds, scores, and scripts of the nonhuman. How can karaoke’s politics of imitation-and-deviation allow us to re-imagine, and even radicalise, some of these fixed media repertoires?
Touching on excerpts from recent lockdown projects including her ‘sonic postcards from fragile petromasculinity’ (2020), Cutler will explore fidelity and transgression in her covers and re-broadcasts of the bad tunes of love, science, and the Anthropocene. There will also be time for questions and a Zoom species sing-along.
Dr Amy Cutler is a geographer, musician and filmmaker who makes B-movies for humans and nonhumans. Her most recent tape release is the end (also ends) of (the) earth and variants (Crow Versus Crow, March 2021).
She has created sound installations, live performances, and expanded cinema for and with organisations including the BBC, Somerset House, Sheffield Doc/Fest, Sheffield Institute of Arts, the Wellcome Trust, the Horniman Museum, International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, Late Junction, Tate Modern, the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, the Horse Hospital, The Natural History Museum, and The Exploratorium San Francisco. Most recently, she completed her first project with interactive full-sphere surround sound ambisonics for the Amoenus artist residency at Iklectik (March 2021). She also is an Associate lecturer in the Department of Music at Goldsmiths.
