the way we travel

The Way Things Travel – John Roach + Aaron Moore

The Way Things Travel was an instrument building and foley techniques and the culminating performance will utilize a three-screen video projection of archival travel and tourism footage that will act as a visual score for groups of performers. The Way Things Travel embraces Cage’s statement about the “tourist attitude” by inviting performers to mingle with non-performers, non artists to work side by side with artists; the project courts Cage’s views on indeterminacy through its visual and sonic improvisational collisions.

John Roach deals with the misuse of objects to make sound; he teaches at Parsons School of Design in New York City and currently teaches a course entitled Sound Matters. Aaron Moore is an Englishman residing in Brooklyn, New York and was a founding member of the English experimental music group Volcano The Bear.
