two frames

2004, 8 channel audio performance/installation, snooker table, fabriano paper, pickups and computer based processing

Two frames was a performance/installation by McLoughlin in Temple Bar Gallery+Studios in 2004. The work was a live response/processing of a soundwork (6 channel installation) made in Limerick that year based on the recording of two frames of snooker between two friends and with the support of EV+A and St Marys Park Youth Club. It was recorded with microphones in each pocket of the snooker table. In the gallery there are speakers in each pocket recreating the sonic space and amplified and treated (FX, etc) drawing accompany and recreate an additional layer of memory of the time in the snooker hall. After the performance in TBG+S, the combined sound work and response remained in the gallery.
