The big upside of not producing You Are Here Festival this year was that I was free to be involved as an artist again. Aside from producing the Babyfreeze Fan Cruise, my other role was as the ‘instrument’ in Composition For Amplified Body Parts, a project by sound artist EB Kerr in which I was strapped up with a mixture of musical and medical equipment so that the internal sounds of my body could be made fodder for a live audio performance.
I was made to exercise, eat and drink and the resulting bodily noise was made into music right there and then. It was an interesting opportunity for a narcissist like me, and a lot of fun. I’ll look forward to seeing future iterations of EB’s work.
