Performance: Our Quake Here Ever Feels by David Soin Tappeser

9 June 2024
18:00 - 19:30
Free to all

Sounds of seismographs that track, trace and record earthquakes around the globe are transposed onto a speculative musical.

Our Quake Here Ever Feels taps into planetary turbulence. Sounds of seismographs that track, trace and record earthquakes around the globe are transposed onto a speculative musical score. Weaving together percussive responses and poetic interjections, this is a story of the earth’s tectonic core, its burning mantle, the trauma of extractivism and its cry for compassion.

Part of Feedback Loop, our series of events relating to themes in Julian Abraham 'Togar''s exhibition.

A prior version of this piece was originally commissioned by Lab’Bel for Five Radio Stations.

David Soin Tappeser is a drummer, composer and performance artist based between London and New Delhi. His practice explores socio-eco-spiritual-tempo-somatic dimensions of sound. His performances and compositions use rhythm to unearth, manipulate and deconstruct linear perceptions of time, interdependence and alterity. They hint at intercultural entanglements, parallel histories and extra-human frames of reference while thinking about environmental destruction and sociopolitical fissures. His approach to drums is improvisation-driven, searching for hidden resonances and unsung textures.
