Staubgold's Markus Detmer on David Cunningham's work - from Reboot FM

Mit einer dekonstruierten Version von ‚Money’, einem frühen Hit der Beatles, landete David Cunningham als ‚The Flying Lizards’ 1979 in den Hitparaden. Das war eigentlich nur ein Versehen, aber es ermöglichte ihm die Unabhängigkeit, seine weiteren Projekte zu verfolgen. Weil er sich mehr für ‚sound’ als für ‚songs’ interessierte entwickelte er sich zum gefragten Produzenten, beispielsweise für die Filmsoundtracks von Michael Nyman. Ich möchte in dieser Sendung auf das musikalische Schaffen dieses Eigenbrödlers eingehen.

Modern Art Oxford


Referencing the original use of the 1960s basement space at Modern Art Oxford that hosted original new performance and poetry, Mouth gathers ten exciting visual artists, writers and musicians for an innovative evening at the Gallery.
These cutting edge artists are brought together by vocalist MacGillivray. Composer and musician Stevie Wishart will begin the evening and present us with her electronic music technologies and medieval instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy. Joining Stevie will be poets B. Catling, Carter Revard, Aaron Williamson, Vahni Capildeo and Tom Chivers. Singer songwriter D. Gwalia, visual artist Kate Davis and musician and artist David Cunningham will complete the ensemble.
By juxtaposing the unique presence of each artist, Mouth presents sounds that face you, words that clench.
