‘Accent’ at Arnolfini’s 4 Days | 26/04/13

Accent is a vocal score for two speakers: one British, one from New Zealand.

It is a composition carefully transposed from hours of casual conversation, serious discussion, drawn-out efforts at explanation, tetchy disagreements and myriad attempts – both lazy and sincere – to impersonate one anothers’ accents. The performance of these uncontrollable voice-sounds tests the borderline between the intentional and the accidental,  opening onto questions of what can and cannot be notated, scored or repeated with exactitude. What emerges is a genuine confusion of the borderlines between imitation and quotation, explanation and demonstration, music and signal, friendship and collaboration, speech and song.

Created and performed as part of an ongoing collaboration with composer Antonia Barnett-McIntosh.
