curated by Richard Higlett
As part of Cardiff Contemporary, Goat Major Projects
will presenting its 7th Project: The Witching Hour. This will feature the creation of a sonique lounge in the Canton based project space. The lounge will be a space to hear a programme of sound art by artists based in Wales in the form of an edited hour of works played as a loop. Spoken word pieces and soundscapes, imaginary places and scenarios are formed through sound, transporting the listener to other realms. The project explores the key themes in contemporary sound art, an artform that exists outside of music and poetry, which could be described as a theatre of frequencies. The title ‘The Witching Hour’ is influenced by the writings of David Toop whose book ‘Haunted Weather’ refers to sound as being uncanny and other worldly.

These Wales-based artists, a mix of established and emerging talent, have in common ‘Rhôd’, an annual exhibition in rural west Wales that aims to site contemporary art in a rural landscape creating a dialogue between urban artists and artists who work in rural settings.
Following Reveal Somerset’s presentation at the Rhôd symposium, held at Chapter, Cardiff in July 2011 in which rural/ urban similarities were discussed, this exhibition seeks to further extend that dialogue into a conversation with The Brewhouse Gallery and it’s visitors.
The artists have been chosen for their diverse mixture of media, which ranges from performance (Good Cop/Bad Cop), film (Anthony Shapland), sculptural objects (Sam Aldridge, Kathryn Campbell Dodd) and interventions (Jason Pinder, David Shepherd).
This exhibition is supported by Reveal Somerset.
