In January 2020, smoke from the Australian wildfires reached Chile. FUME starts with a creative soundscape response by long-time music collaborators Georgina Treloar (Australia) and Memo Dumay (Chile, in absentia), manifesting in a live improvised performance with George Clift, Ross Blair, and Treloar, who returns to a collaboration that arose from last year’s Profound Sound. The set will explore a narrative of fire, desertification and sea-level rise, casting a triangulation between the Atacama Desert, the Australian Desert and Dungeness, also classified as a desert. Artist and activist Helen Lindon, whose art explores related environmental themes will create a live artwork in response to the sonic narrative of the climate and ecological crisis. Members of the audience will also be invited to draw their interpretations of the sounds they hear.
