    Hot Mess is an audio visual performance project which consists of projected video and sound performace. Hot Mess was premiered at Cafe Oto, London, in March 2019 at a C.A.N.V.A.S. label live performance event.

    This work was conceived in unison with the Cipher LP project. The starting point for Hot Mess was the consideration of whether or not we make and write music in the image of how it is conceived in our thoughts. Hot Mess responds to it by speculating about the possibility of making our thoughts ‘readable’ so that they can be deciphered and transcribed into writen codified music.

    The Hot Mess is our immaculate pure thinking. The audio visual performance conveys thoughts undergoing an introspective, meditative process in order to achieve a decipherable state. This speculative conception of a future of transcription and propagation of music involves producing form from thoughts through deep introspection.
