Look What They Done To My Song - Michael Curran

Three songs The Devil is Afraid of Music, What Have They Done To My Song Ma? and How does it Feel to Feel? were performed and filmed in the exhibition space of Matt’s Gallery making it into an open recording session and film set for a three-day period. Through the subsequent editing process the material is subjected to radical temporal shifts in the form of loops, overlays, speeding, slowing and repetition creating a series of rhythms, counterpoints and silences, all exploring the construction of song and narrative expectation forming a drama (or crisis) of performance. The songs themselves are literally at stake, their survival questioned through these processes of translation.

The overall feeling is that of a séance in which the enquiry is what have they done to my song?
