meeting my Enemies collaborater, Dylan Nyoukis, at The Hardy Tree Gallery on Monday 8th July 2013, was a wonder. we were first up for this Voice Art evening at the Enemies Project exhibition/Hardy Tree Gallery, which for us, was a dark room, a dark room soon became a light room for Dylan when the projection lit up over himself and our hyper cassette tape mural.

we have david kelly & dylan nyoukis so let’s give them a round of applause


 will project film with armadillos and mimi spirits over our triptych whilst you making noises, gonna be hot great

this culmination of our collaboration was a moving experience for me. i projected giant japanese papiermache armadillo bouncing around Dylan and the Mimi Spirits, illuminating, playing. somehow an unspoken was spoken. I had made this film just the night before+sameday, fresh for Dylan’s voiiice union.

Each artist / poet premiered a new work under the criteria that it was acoustic and primarily non-lingual. This event attempted to evidence the relationship between the artforms of avant garde sound poetry and experimental music & sonic art as so close as to quite obvious be stompings in the same ground.

Here Dylan Nyoukis performs in tandem with the video art of David Kelly, whom he collaborated with in the exhibition itself.

blue and red and red and blue and green and blue and red. a sister’s eight birthday party. italian horror. political bilgepumps. pet armadillo. a ghost mother. lightning. lightning. now then now then.
