Artist Bio bits:
Paul Good and Kirsty Wood are an artist duo, who make sculpture and sound. They are influenced by the environments they inhabit or encounter collectively, trapping various aspects of the past and present. They are interested in the context of sounds representation physically i.e. the same way as a score. Sounds they make include sampling, directly sourced from surroundings, with guitar, drums and some vocal elements to create a description of form.
They make sound in the same way they make sculpture, with the same formal concerns. Taking an example of John Cage’s 4’33”, what interests them is the frame work, it has a beginning and an end, the piano lid opens and then closes. This framing of nothingness is what they explore in their own work, negative space for them has the same physicality as the walls, the ceiling and the floor, it’s as tangible as clay.
Musically they create each piece as they would a sketch, starting with a basic structure, slowly building and editing until something forms that feels complete. The compositions are about balance, how one part sits next to another. They want the listener to feel immersed in a sonic landscape.
