The Companion: Josephine Foster & Victor Herrero and Will Holder

Last Futile Stab At Fun

Typographer Will Holder (UK) reads a metered lecture “to be sung or chanted”, written by American composer Robert Ashley. Previously entitled The Meanings of Modernism, the lecture entails Ashley's explanation of why words lodge themselves longer in cultural memory when they are grouped in fours.

Josephine Foster (US) and Victor Herrero (ES) play a live vocal and acoustic set, channeling the spirit of collective anonymous music, dismantling and decomposing song forms.

Part of The Companion, 19-21 September, an experimental performance programme that brings together a group of artists for a few days in the city of Liverpool.
