The piece investigates the changing identities and cross cultural influences brought, experienced and exchanged by the two artists in a foreign place, Wakayama Japan, represented in the colours of red and blue hair. Their encounters and exchanges are interpreted through a range of media, paper, red and blue hair dye, suspended paper hair paintings which are amplified, electro-acoustic spatial sound, illuminated coloured scores, digital images, installation and live action sound painting and performance.
Identity | Difference | Cultural Setting – The red and blue pigments, commonly used by the artists in hair dye, are symbols of difference and identity which can blend, contrast and fuse to transform themselves, the space and the acoustic environment into a resonant and illuminated immersive sound environment. The room becomes a place of sonic exchange, trading and sharing familiar, foreign, exotic sound gestures between cultures, a room to experience, to wonder, hear, feel the relationships of different cultures coming together through surround sound, light, illuminated coloured notations and

Festival of new sound performance. The sum of the parts yield a series of mutations not possible without the collaboration. The created work will change and mutate in each cultural setting. The mediated paper and hair will render these differences in each performance as a reminder of the powerful role culture, time and place play in our daily lives.
Kami. The two artists created the piece as guests of Wakayama university working in a studio on the 6th floor of the Forte building in Wakayama Japan. This common foreign context sharpened the experience of exchange. After seven days of experimentation, photography, sound recording, filming, and amplified sound hair painting by the artists, it was found that the Japanese word for paper and hair is shared, Kami. The rendering of identities through different media had left the visual traces on the paper, and the sound in the air and memory, the hair and paper becoming one in a time space shared by two people.
