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.
