Accompanying the exhibition Transmitted Live: Nam June Paik Resounds at the Talbot Rice Gallery.

Byungjun Kwon
This is Me
Kwon started his musical career in the early 1990s as a singer/songwriter and has released seven albums. He creates music for diverse art practices developing his own electronic instruments and performance tools. This work is part of his performance series, Small One to Have All. In this audiovisual performance produced by mechanical manipulation of the ‘seeds’ of sound coming from his own body, he draws on the technology of face mapping and morphing, projecting the images created live in real time onto a performer’s face.

Haroon Mirza
The Calling
Mirza is a British artist whose works trigger audiovisual experiences by deploying domestic appliances and analogue devices. The Calling, is derived from his previous video work, Adhãn (2009). Adhãn is the Islamic calling, recited five times a day by a muezzin in order to gather people to prayer. In the new work, The Calling (2013), Mirza has removed all monotheist connotations and has instead investigated the seductive qualities of sound and music. Lights and radios are given roles and the sounds coming from them create a context where performers come to be united with the objects. Cellist Okkyung Lee makes a special guest appearance.
