      A night of readings and performances to mark the publication of two new books published by the Sonic Art Research Unit. Azimuth, the ecology of an ear, by Patrick Farmer, and aspects of the morning, by Helen Frosi.

      Azimuth, the ecology of an ear, is a new book by Patrick Farmer in collaboration with twenty three other artists. Azimuth revolves around fifteen attempts to locate and rend the human/non-human ear into fragments, isolating and being with its forms and natures outside of their conventional relations. It asks, what is the ear; where is the ear; who is the ear; what are we to our ears; are we listeners or listening; does the ear hear? It considers the ear as interlocutor, as equivalence, as synergy, as eros (hear us).

      Azimuth features work by Thomas Martin Nutt, Susana Gómez Larrañga , Lotti V Closs, Richard Skelton, Carrie Olivia Adams, Helen Frosi, Patrick Farmer, April Van Winden, Florence Sunnen, Lance Austin Olsen, Tomoé Hill, Chloe Proctor, Nisha Ramayya, J.R. Carpenter, Julia Bloch, Michael Pisaro, Clara de Asís, Fay Zmija Nicolson, Tess Denman-Cleaver, Joseph Clayton Mills, Amelia Ishmael, Emily Leon, Hannah Dargavel-Leafe and Mirella Salame.

      aspects of the morning is a pillow book to the River Lea (London); a spatial poem beginning at dawn and following the river’s course until noon, portraying, as a splay of seemingly disassociated words on the page, Helen’s deep acoustic and ecological sensibility. Ecological in its writing - multilayered and polyphonic - the open lattice of the text acts as a perfume, encouraging the reader to linger and drift through an alternative time, sound and light.

      Cost: £10, £8 advance
