DESCRIPTION

»You, Copiphora gorgonensis« is an hour-long meditative experience for online audience focusing on interspecies relationships, psychoacoustics and presence.

Over five stages, participants undergo a metamorphosis into Copiphora gorgonensis, a grasshopper-like insect that - despite 650 million years of evolutionary divergence - miraculously shares our human inner ear structure. Listening, insectoid body-modding and time travel are used to position the interconnected sounding present within the vastness of space and evolutionary time.


An online meditation for watching at home will be available, too.

BIO

MICHAELBRAILEY is an electronic musician, composer and curator based between Manchester (UK) and Hamburg (DE). His current work - often foregrounding text, screens and voices - filters contemporary anxiety through themes including genealogy, lossy data transfer, body tension, ecology, ekphrasis and Love.

Most recently, he has released EP 'the broken heart is more than a metaphor it is terraforming in action' on label Astral Plane Recordings, with accompanying music video premiered by AQNB. Other recent projects include the guided meditative experience 'You, Copiphora gorgonensis' commissioned by gallery FACT Liverpool and guitarist Callum Coomber, and the generative video piece 'THISPERSONDOESNOTEXIST' commissioned by composer-performers Bastard Assignments and made in collaboration with AI developer Laura Ibáñez.
