Ain Bailey / Zachary James Watkins

Ain Bailey’s work encompasses field recordings and found sounds and are inspired by ideas and reflections on silence and absence, architectural urban spaces, and feminist activism. Her electroacoustic compositions are created for a variety of forms, including multichannel and mixed media installations, moving image soundtracks, live performance and dance. The first day of the Festival closes with a solo set by guitarist, artist and composer Zachary James Watkins.  His performance will explore “fuzzy intonations”, using an equal-tempered guitar fretboard to create rich, resonant sound fields. Watkins says: “As an improviser, I explore form and do not shy away from structured pre-compositional controls.”
