This paper will be a dialogue between three languages; music, painting and text, specifically through digital painting, saxophone playing, performative activity, written text, spoken text and international languages. We are interested in the coming together of fundamentally different approaches to language. This planned improvised encounter encourages a shunting, slippage or collage to arise; giving opportunities to acknowledge common and distinct dialogues. There is a co-production between musician and instrument: the saxophone needs the saxophonist to make a sound, and vice versa. There is a co-production between painter and the history of their medium, each requires the other. The saxophonist does not make images; the painter does not make sounds, together they create a space that allows for both to be in accord and discord simultaneously. The saxophonist produces music made in response and non-response to the painter, and vice versa. The saxophonist and painter both read, write and give voice to text; a shared language. This interrelationship is generating a different language form, constructed through and between three distinct ‘voices’ (music, painting and text). We are interested in adopting a parasitical and symbiotic approach to dialogical exchange, with an aim of provoking new types of knowledge through artistic research. We want to expose the presentation in a site with an attentive audience in a city that is not our home or workplace in order to elicit new possibilities for the dialogue between us. The live audience will observe the practitioners interacting with and between each other’s practices. Bracey will digitally alter a reproduction of an iconic painting (his voice); Morrad will play saxophone (her voice); A co-authored text will form the third part of the dialogue (their voice). The live audience will switch from observers to participants through the action of the Q&A, which will be a two-way process.
