It’s 1982 and Anna is driving an ocean blue classic Cadillac to meet renowned poet and playwright Deena Metzger in Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles. Passing a nondescript desert patch where tall wheat and mustard flowers grow, Anna opens her mouth and sings in a salient stream of rhythmic, melodic sound.

Firstdraft and Liquid Architecture host Californian performance artist Anna Homler in the courtyard for a program that presents her otherworldly practice exploring mythical vocalese, unknown languages and the poetics of ordinary things.

Against a backdrop of archival ephemera, Homler will speak about Breadwoman: the legendary being she ‘manifested’  in collaboration with Steve Moshier in the 1980s downtown L.A performance scene.

Homler will be joined by Megan Clune as they introduce the performance collection Pharmacia Poetica—an ongoing project that plunges into the transformative power of sound and images as it prescribes a melody for every malady—ahead of their collaboration for the NOW Now

This program follows Homler’s unique voice, developed over three decades of improvised performance through an artist-led talk, interspersed with sound clips, performance, and a Q&A with Dr. Lindsay Kelley.

Breadwoman with Mark Harwood & Matthew Hopkins

All Are Welcome bakery hosts this special live-taping of Anna Homler in conversation with Ludo Sounds as part of her upcoming tour across Australia and New Zealand with Liquid Architecture. 

Homler speaks to the genesis of Breadwoman, a voice developed over three decades of improvised performance:  If you don’t try to understand, you will. She is the voice, and the voice is cosmic reality’s musicality. For Homler, performance art is “a form big enough to contain everything happening”.

In conversation with Stewart, Homler introduces her performance collection Pharmacia Poetica; approaches to vocalization and improvisation; interspersed with sound clips, unreleased material and live demonstrations.

Homler will be joined by Mark Harwood (Penultimate Press) and  Matthew Hopkins (Half High etc) for an improvised set.

A radio series and exhibition by Thora Dolven Balke in collaboration with Erik Balke, Dominic Barter, Camilla Rocha Campos, Trine Falch, Dr. Karl-Heinz Frommolt, Milford Graves, Gaby Hartel, Musa Michelle Mattiuzzi and Amilcar Packer

All that respires, conspires reflects on the act of ‘conspiring’the act of breathing together. The radio series explores sound’s relationship to circulation and movement, following sonic movement through physical spaces, social spaces, interdisciplinary spaces, and political spaces. Through Milford Graves’ compositional studies into the human heartbeat; Trine Falch’s precise understanding of the power of enactment and staging; Erik Balke’s practice of free improvisation, breathing techniques and developing instruments; Michelle Mattiuzzi’s physical research into how current and past narratives manifest in the body; Dominic Barter’s social methodology ofRestorative Circles in the justice and education system of Brazil to how Dr. Karl-Heinz Frommolt’s research with wolves and foxes help us better understand human communication, just to mention some. Etymologically to ‘conspire’ comes from Latincon- + -spirare: to breathe together. Here ‘conspiration’ is transposed to mean sensitivity, communication, instinct and synchronicity, within oneself and in relation to other beings, bodies and citizens. For example, how understanding the movements of the circulatory and neurological systems can heighten our sensitivity to rhythm, language and our ability to listen.

Compiled and edited by Thora Dolven Balke, the work combines interviews, field recordings, archival footage and commissioned compositions from Brazil, Norway, Germany, the UK and US, collected over an 18 month period. Contributors from the varying disciplines of natural science, social activism, justice, performance, medical research, and music share their insights, research and work on what it is to transmit meaning, what is necessary to allow action and exchange to take place. The conversations draw from scientific research, artistic work and human experience. Episodes will be streamed online, as well as played live during an event in Hvelvet at Ultima Festival Tuesday 12 September at 7 pm.

UKS will present an extended version of the radio series through an exhibition - displaying installations of archive material, works and objects from the contributors.
