He's also the initiator of Active crossover, a sound exhibition touring throughout the Uk, where those involved devote themselves to open cross-pollination...
Simon Whetham through his activities wishes to place the ear in a central position as imaginary fertilizer as opposed to the tyranny of the visual...
beneath the swinging bridge, his MS contribution, casts a peculiar light onto a passage point & everyday architectural element, attempting to make us figure it out on a pure aural, sensory mode...
Distortion of time,
light metal breeze,
low gurgling chant
along oxidized furrows...
Listen to the corroded particles,
the subdued streams...
-
crossing over,

transient and frail,

-

beyond the firm structures...
hidden life exudes
from every surface...
A distant song fades like a twisted memory...
beneath the swinging bridge is an ode to connection..." [label info]
