Unsound 2013: Dream Cargoes Q&A

November 2013

Jennifer Lucy Allan talks to Keith Fullerton Whitman, Roly Porter, Lucy Benson and Marcel Weber about their audio visual work performed at Unsound in Krakow this year.

Dream Cargoes takes as its starting point a JG Ballard short story of the same name. The project was developed by Marcel Weber and Lucy Benson, who worked with musicians Keith Fullerton Whitman and Roly Porter, recasting Ballard's marooned protagonist, who encounters new life forms flourishing in toxic waste. The score is performed by Porter, working with a string quartet from Sinfonietta Cracovia, and Fullerton Whitman on modular synthesizers.
