Exeter Phoenix Digital Art Commission 2010

Owen Lloyd: Building Materials
Exeter Phoenix Galleries / 19 Nov - 21 Dec



Bristol based composer and artist Owen Lloyd presents a new, site specific work selected for the Exeter Phoenix Digital Arts Commission 2010.

'Building Materials' is an installed composition generated in real time by the sounds and events within Exeter Phoenix. Harvested from a variety of sensors throughout the building, audio and event data will come together to create a constantly evolving musical composition. Reflecting the sounds to be found around Exeter Phoenix, its rhythms of use and the actions of its visitors. Crucially, rather than simply represent noises from the life of the building, he will be using bespoke computer interfaces and softwareto transform them. The completed work will stand as a composition in and of itself, in constant flux, its relationship to site and audience at once highly bound and aesthetically independent.

The exhibition will also include experimental film works in which Lloyd has worked both solo and in collaboration with director Toby Cornish in which, using various strategies, the relationships between image, sound and artistic collaboration are stretched.

Casting Call for Bristol based short

Marie is frightened. In her community on the edge of the city bad things are happening. It might be her fault or it might be something much worse.

Marie: Female lead – lives in Hartcliffe and runs every day on Dundry Hill. A vulnerable teenager struggling with the transition to adulthood. Playing age 15.

Michelle: Lives in Hartcliffe. Marie’s best friend. More confident and grown up than Marie, but fast losing patience with her friend’s strange behaviour. Playing age 15.

Mark: Michelle’s boyfriend. Something of a bad influence, quite cocky and insensitive to Marie’s problems. Playing age 20.

TWO MALE ACTORS REQUIRED FOR SHORT FILM SHOOTING IN DARTMOOR AREA IN AUGUST/SEPTEMBER

SYNOPSIS:A short western set on the plains of Dartmoor. Death is creeping up on the old man. He can feel it, he sees it in his dreams. And though his son Webb denies it, he can feel it too. 'Rider' deals with both mens struggles to accept what's coming.

The two roles:

WEBB: Caucasian, Acting age 35-45 (I can bend this a bit for the right actor, but must look at least 30) Webb is a Dartmoor Shepherd who lives a simple life alone with his father in an isolated cottage. He's a strong and silent type, but does his best to care for his aging father.

As the lead actor you will be required on anything up to seven different shooting days. These will however be spread out over the next couple of months and organised around you (and the weather). Previous film experience not essential, but the ability to give a more subtle, low-key performance than is usually expected on stage is, particularly as the film has very little dialogue.

OLD MAN: Caucasian, Acting age 70+

Wheelchair bound and blinded by cataracts, but still sharp as a button. The old man can feel death creeping up on him, but this stubborn old git won't go down without a fight.

You will be required on 3 different shoots. One evening, one full day, and one half day. Dates to be confirmed and organised to suit you. Previous film experience not essential, but the ability to give a more subtle, low-key performance than is usually expected on stage is.

As this is a self-funded low budget film i'm afraid both roles are unpaid. I will however try to contribute to any travel costs required and provide food on set for long shooting days. I can also guarantee that the film will be shot to a very high standard, so with the help of some strong acting you could be part of something special.

CONTACT: Please contact me in the first instance by emailing jedhart@hotmail.co.uk. I can then send you the story, script, clips of my previous work and other materials and we can discuss an audition from there.
