Mark Vernon (live/UK)

11.07, 08:00 pm

Mark Vernon is a Glasgow based artist who explores concepts of audio archaeology, magnetic memory and nostalgia through his sound works. At the core of his practice lies a fascination with the intimacy of the radio voice, environmental sound, obsolete media and the re-appropriation of found sounds. A rich collection of domestic tape recordings; audio letters, dictated notes, answer-phone messages and other lost voices often find their way into his unorthodox soundworlds. These diverse elements are distilled into radiophonic compositions for broadcast, fixed media, installations and live performances.

A keen advocate of radio as an art form, he co-runs and curates Glasgow’s art radio station, Radiophrenia. He is an award winning radio producer who has produced programmes internationally for stations including Resonance FM, VPRO, Sound Art Radio, Radio Revolten, Deutschland Radio Kultur, Radio Cona, Kunstradio, Wavefarm, Radio Art Zone, RADIA and the BBC.

His solo music projects have been published through labels including Kye, Glistening Examples, Canti Magnetici, Flaming Pines, Misanthropic Agenda, Entr’acte, Gagarin, Calling Cards Publishing, Psyché Tropes, Granny, Persistence of Sound, Sonoris, Discrepant, 3Leaves and his own meagre resource imprint.
He performs regularly at venues and galleries in the UK, Europe and beyond including festival appearances at Hideous Porta, Apologies in Advance, Tectonics, Counterflows, Full of Noises, Supernormal (UK), Radio Revolten (Germany), Wien Modern / Untape Me (Austria) Sonikas (Spain), LUFF, SONOHR (Switzerland), Oscillation (Belgium), Longueur d’ondes (France) and Soundtiago (Chile).

Invited by artist and musician Nika Son in the framework of her exhibition Scatter, no turn:
During the exhibition period, Nika Son invites other artists to make interventions in the form of music and lecture performances. Within these collaborations or relationships Nika Son reflects the central idea of exchange and the simultaneous search for traces in her own artistic practice. Mark Vernon’s live performance is the fourth and last intervention in the exhibition.
Scatter, no turn is an exploration of insomnia and the tension between exhaustion, restlessness and desire, and consists of a 9-channel-audio-video-installation, drawings and objects creating an audiovisual space that is constantly changing, meandering and transforming.
