GUGGENHEIM ABU DHABI VISITING ARTIST PROGRAMME
2022 - 2023
I was invited along with eight other United Arab Emirates based artists with limited sound recording experience by the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi to collaborate and work closely with Artist Kabir Mohanty and sound engineer/ composer Vikram Joglekar to record, compose and produce memories in the form of sound compositions which are relevant to our experiences of living in the United Arab Emirates.
As Artists we were also requested to go out into the community and find and invite a guest. Someone who’s voice is not commonly heard.
The collaborative project resulted in a sound installation at an Abu Dhabi Art space. Sixteen threads produced by the collaborators played randomly on 2 speakers with a series of objects and a model of the proposed future Installation.
The Video below "Please Leave in Silence" is Spencer Sonic Composition produced as part of the Collaborative project. Spencer produced the Short Film to accompany the Sonic composition with his family outside of the Guggenheim project.
