Wednesday 11 May @ The Audio Foundation, 5:30pm Neil Feather - Wormholes, Vortices and Loops

Please join us to celebrate the opening of 'Wormholes, Vortices and Loops', a new exhibition by Neil Feather.
Neil Feather is known as an inventor of unusual musical instruments, stochastic machines that use rotary and pendular motion to create surprising music. In 'Wormholes, Vortices and Loops', his first exhibition of drawings in over 40 years, he explores colour and graphic form alongside the presentation of new audio and moving image works.Illuminating the sensations of life in 2022, the most immediate inspirations for Neil’s drawings are custom cars, sea-slugs and nudibranchs, the cosmic horrors of H.P. Lovecraft, Basil Wolverton’s grotesque and surrealistic cartoons, and the apocalyptic psychedelia of Robert Williams. Are these wormholes a representation of everything at once, or perhaps the diagrammed entanglement of the known, the unknown, and the believed?
Devised as musical compositions, Neil’s 'Ball Movie' videos feature erroneous orreries, inside-out planet models that revolve but don’t repeat – mechanical planets as chaos engines – while 'Loop Songs' feature the sounds of antique engines and the sounds of Neil’s invented instruments.
