In a play of perfectly segueing semantics Allen and Riis come together again in 2019 – the piece Inverted and Pursued Ferrari was originally presented in 2012 at Klubb Yo Yo in Malmö – to create a new recording, extrapolating the original intention of the phase inversion treatment by simultaneously attempting to achieve the opposite from one another. Remixing via MAX/MSP, Riis turns Allen’s Inverted Ferrari on its head where nothing from something greets something from nothing. Happy 90th Birthday Dear Luc F!
Dave Allen works predominantly in the field of Visual Art with a strong interest in the development of experimental and avant-garde music. In 2011, upon an open invitation by the Association Presque Rien (responsible for the works of composer Luc Ferrari) to rework the digital archives of Ferrari, Allen further developed his turntablist phase inversion performance to include a selection of Ferrari’s field recordings whereby silence is sought via playing manipulated versions of the tracks simultaneously.
Composer, laptop musician and improviser Jakob Riis is active in the experimental fields of electro-acoustic music, working in a wide range of different constellations; composing music for spatialization in loudspeaker orchestras, duo collaborations with other improvisers, composing for and playing with larger orchestras such as Barriärorkestern, Copenhagen Art Ensemble and Konvoj Ensemble.
