Tao Wells' THE SILENCE of NOT BEING FAMOUS, LISTEN



as part of Tao Wells' exhibition Art Aristocracy at Christchurch artist-run space the High Street Project (renamed 'The National Gallery' for the show's duration), the artist staged a one night performance with the above title, what he called "the debut of a new visual score for the playing of volume", in which radio cegeste was one of two artists invited to contribute a sound piece.

I put together a DJ set with a distinctly "90s ambient" flavour, due to the 1990s being a theme of Tao's exhibition overall, as well as preliminary discussions around his memories of listening to my show Rotate your State while a student at the School of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury.

"A performance about volume and listening accompanying a visual score created for the event. The wonderful sounds and skills of Radio C├Ęgeste and Ability Trauma feature. "

thanks to Tao for the photographs. basic information about the event can be found here
