Event overview

Artist Talk: Beatrice Dillon

The artist talk is a chance to hear Beatrice Dillon talk about her work and life's influences. It will be hosted by the Tune curator, Sarah Miles.

Beatrice Dillon is an artist and musician based in London. Originally trained in visual art, her work brings together interests in rhythm, spatial sound, process-based systems using synthetic and acoustic sound. Chosen as The Wire Magazine’s “Album of 2020”, her release Workaround (PAN) combines FM synthesis with analogue instrumentation and draws on influences including Afro-Caribbean rhythmic traditions and painter Bridget Riley’s essays on grid arrangements and colour.

For Tune, Dillon presents a new commission, Impossible Ideal Angle, a multi-channel audio installation based on her ongoing interests in rhythm and spatial sound. The work consists of speakers playing sequences of synthetic sound to explore regularity, recurrence, overlap, volume, timbre, harmonic clouds, precision and drift. The piece is different for each listener depending on their position in the room. For the two performances at Haus der Kunst, Dillon has invited performer, Eve Stainton, to contribute to the installation with two co-devised movement interpretations of cyclical structure of the sound. Stainton is an artist interested in the politics of uncodable queer presence and its intersections with ethnic and class origin. Their accelerating and decelerating movements challenge the audience’s experience and pace of the piece. The installation Impossible Ideal Angle in the Westflügel is open from 1214.2.22.

With a Beatrice Dillon performance ticket you have free admission to the artist talks, otherwise a ticket for the artist talk is 5 € at the box office.
