Strange Attractor
Experiments in a quinary landscape and other fields

Farpoint catalogue fp049


Strange Attractor’s economy is rich in the extraction and exploration of ideas and processes
creating sound and visual possibilities using installation, still and moving images, video documentation
and performance. Working in equanimity towards strategic open-ended outcomes, the quintet and their
guests develop new micro and macro units and schisms of sound and visual components in each ‘gig’ or performance
creating multiple points of entry ...and departure.

(from Strange Attractor, Experiments in a quinary landscape and other fields by Dawn Williams)

Following their two recent and very well received Strange Attractor live performances at Art In Science at UCD, Dublin,
and the Fine Art Faculty of IADT, Dublin comes this beautifully designed 140 page ePublication. It features detailed
essays by Jed Speare, EL Putnam, Stephen Vitiello and Dawn Williams and full colour photography by Doreen Kennedy
capturing Strange Attractor’s Boston and New York installation & live performance project during the summer of 2012.
The ePublication also includes sections on their performance in The Library Room at the Crawford Galley during December 2012,
a list of live performances to date, and artist biographies and other project related information.

The audio section features six tracks of live recordings from performances at Studio Soto and Harvestworks.
Guests at these unique live events include Stephen Vitiello, Jed Speare, Liz Ronka, Ernest Karel, EL Putnam,
Sara June, Sven Anderson, members of Mobius Quartet and the New England Forum for Acoustic Ecology amongst others.
The recordings have been edited and compiled by Jed Speare and Stephen Vitiello.
You can find a full track listing below.

Bernard Clarke, Nova, RTE lyric FM has described Strange Attractor as “The finest experimental improv in the country at present”.
