Acoute Installations takes the two acouté briefs and moves away from the performance presentations, the concert, and seeks to:

  • explore what new possibilities acoustic installations have to offer in a digital age
  • explore the act of listening in the creative process.

Short term objective. To deliver acoute installations within a acoute evening concert, pre-concert and interval presentations. A tight schedule but a starting point.

Long term objective. To deliver acoute installations as a stand alone exhibition, with duration, co-dependant on the acoute concert series, with the festival a specific opportunity.

The Challenge. the installations are acoustic and no electricity is used in the production of sound.

Who? Two routes,

  1. Specific artists may submit proposals. The artists maybe be "local" - international - or global. How? complete the form below.
  2. The acoute installations network, artists based in the north of England how wish to share, explore and develop this arena that may result in both solo work and group developed work being exhibited.

I am interested, What happens next?

Hello, on April 1st 11.00 am 2014 frakture or frakture.org was dissolved, or downsized. The reasons and will be shared during the year.

Frakture's previous activity may or may not remain but will now be delivered within a new structure referred to as The Improvisers's Network, see the "dashboard" in the footer of this page. Phil Morton's proposal, in short, is, Frakture's previous, numerous activities are to be seperated and run as singular activities.

The Frakure name may carry on, the archive will migrate to the network site. It took 15 years to build Frakture.org, this re-shaping will not take 15 years, but it will not happen in a day.

The name will carry on, for sure, as "we can celebrate" Fraktures' achievements, golden moments, the people, the music, the sounds.
Lotta continua, phil morton, May 2014
