You’re timing’s all wrong is a quirky sonic experiment, that oscillates between a rather sweet acoustic guitar melody and the wonderfully crazy nebulaphone by bleep labs.
I love crazy musical gadgets and the idea that machines can be chaotic and unpredictable. This is i’m sure why i don’t really want to fix my juno 106… because it sounds so awesome when it’s just a little bit broken.
anyway… back to the track and the work in the exhibition…
Adele Winteridge teamed up with a couple of her pals at Foolscap Studio Elly Russell and Siam Pascale to create the quite beautiful balancing act of “Fine Balance”. A live mobile created from timber, paint, seedlings and wool.
Adele writes of the process: “The song to me is a really happy vibrant song with undertones of a balancing act between the melody and the overriding glitches. It is reminiscent of a sunny day in a car, driving around the hills… or turning your music up really loudly and riding around the streets of Melbourne on your bike. Sun through the trees and wind in the hair.
The piece is a “Calderseque” kinetic mobile that can hang inside or outside. The plants are balanced from different lengths of dowel with coloured wool threaded through them. Each arm holds a seedling, as they grow at different rates (plant variations) they send the mobile into different balancing positions, changing the aesthetic of the piece daily.”
Adele also writes about it in her Foolscap Blog.
