Vide Voce (The Three's in the Four)

by Cunningham, David, Partridge, Stephen

Video 1986

Scottish Arts Council

The idea for this work is founded in the experience of the Scottish landscape which is often threatening but always powerful. The threat to this seemingly unchangeable presence was tragically underlined by the Chernobyl disaster. Partridge invited David Cunningham, composer and music producer, together with Mary Phillips, singer and performer, to collaborate with him on this project. The sound was created solely from Phillips' voice, where the acoustic perspective mirrors that of the landscape. The composition of the images parallels the sound structure weaving the parts together to complete the marriage.
