Louis Carnell has continued his ongoing series of curated collaborations with “three”, a new piece created with experimental saxophonist and composer Ben Vince. This new collaboration follows his previous releases: “one” with Keeley Forsyth, which launched the project last month, and “two” with Lee Ranaldo. The accompanying video features visual works by Louis Carnell & Arcin Sagdic.
Carnell has also announced a London performance on November 16th, 2023 at Stoke Newington Old Church, with support from >Σ.
The 111 project draws on visual, recorded and live performance. The series will see 15 collaborations in total, each unfolding as a cycle of single releases, each created with a diverse selection of artists from across the globe. Louis Carnell conceived of 111 as “an endeavor to trace the shape of hope in an epoch of disintegration.”
Carnell’s work “a concern with both the physical and digital environments” where he finds himself. His use of sound to “interrogate social structures and hierarchy” means that he takes on “themes of anxiety and the connotations of masculinity and race.”
His previous collaborators include Arcin Sagdic, Daniel Sannwald, Frederik Heyman and Peter De Potter and his recent curated events have included performances at Café OTO, London and the Volksbühne, Berlin.
Follow Louis Carnell for the next two releases in the series, collaborations with Yasa Asmar, and Coby Sey, with further releases continuing into 2024.
