News of next exhibition at the Bluecoat... COMPOSER OF THE YEAR TO CAPTURE SMALL SLICE OF HISTORY IN LIVERPOOL
Janek Schaefer : Sound Art Saturday December 5th 2009 to Sunday January 17th 2010
Acclaimed by contemporaries such as Brian Eno, British Composer of the Year in Sonic Art, Janek Schaefer comes to the Bluecoat in December for a unique documentation of history. At midnight on December 1 2009 the Winter Hill transmitter, located near Bolton, will be turned off and the analogue terrestrial television signal to Merseyside will disappear forever. For National Portrait, the sound artist will address what he describes as “the death of analogue television” in the UK. Schaefer will make audio and video recordings of the last 24 hour transmission of each of the five analogue television channels (BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4 and Five) with the dying television waves forming the structure of the work’s soundtrack.
In addition to this newly commissioned work, Schaefer is presenting a six room retrospective which spans his 20 year career. This will include his widely revered Recorded Delivery piece which music and production pioneer Brian Eno said: “….remains one of the wittiest and most interesting in the field of Sound-Art. It is elegant, economical and clever, and makes me wish I'd thought of it first.”
Created in 1995, Recorded Delivery is a sound activated tape recording of a parcel travelling from Exhibition Rd post office, to an installation room in the Acorn Self Storage centre, Wembley, London. Visitors will hear the mysterious world of scanning, stamping, lifts, vans, radios, singing and final delivery unfold, with a surprise highlight as we eavesdrop among hot blooded postmen early in the morning.

Local photographer Elaine Stapleton spent 5 weeks earlier this year working with young children aged eight to 11 in six village schools in Tanzania. The children, who had never seen a camera before, were loaned digital cameras and taught how to take photographs. The project enabled them to tell their own stories by taking pictures of their friends and families and recording images of everyday life in their village. The resulting images are striking and uncontrived. Venue details
