Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, 'Far Gone and Out'

Pursuing the psychological experiments initiated by ‘Silent Sound’ their project for the Liverpool Biennial 2006, Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard seek to tap into the latent energy of the performance space at Grain – an abandoned holding space between someplace and no-place. The resulting piece, Far Gone And Out is a sonic limbo, bringing together recordings of each of the artists undergoing a personal session of Past Life Regression with clinical hypnotist Barry Cooper. Split across the left and right channels of the stereo mix, these fragments of subconscious narrative are entwined with a musical composition by The Late Cord, a collaboration between musicians John Mark Lapham and Micah P Hinson. The result is a beautifully compelling state of otherness.
