Salvage Rhythms | Sam Williams and Roly Porter

Season 9, Episode 2,  Dec 18, 2019, 02:52 PM

Developed in residence at Somerset House Studios, visual artist Sam Williams and musician Roly Porter present Salvage Rhythms, a collaboration resulting in a performance and film drawing on systems of archaeology, mycelial networks, composting and non-human relationships to explore different possibilities of survival and connection.

Sam and Roly will present a newly commissioned film Salvage Rhythms at Somerset House Studios in 2020, which collages together sound and movement from their performance of the same title at AGM, with original and found footage; animation and photography to create a dense and decaying compost of human and non-human entanglement.

Salvage Rhythms features as part of I Should Be Doing Something Else Right Now, the second season at Somerset House Studios' new permanent exhibition space, Gallery 31, from 23 Jan – 31 May 2020.

Produced by Femi Oriogun-Williams for Reduced Listening. Commissioned by Somerset House Studios
