Softday perform at Just Listen event in Cork

Softday will perform a new acousmatic composition; Who man? Ravenous man! Leather man! Tearer man! Destroyer! as part of Anne Bean’s Pooled installation for the International Sound Art Event:  Just Listen, at the Elysian, Cork, on April 23, 2011, at 20:00.

Softday’s live improvised performance is in response to the text of percussionist and sound artist Paul Burwell’s collaborative improvised poem ‘Adventures in the House of Memory’, created in preparation for William Burroughs’ Final Academy at Ritzy, in 1982. This poem was the last work Paul recorded, with Anne Bean and Chris Gladwin, two months before he died in 2007.
