Created by Charles Campbell
APPETITE was an experiment in performance using the principle of audio feedback as a creative tool made live in collaboration between Skewed Visions co-founder Charles Campbell and composer/sound designer Ted Moore. Inspired by sources as varied as Guy Debord’s The Society of the Spectacle, Chris Marker’s sci-fi film-novel, La Jetee, the poetry of Vladimir Mayakovsky, and the principle of audio feedback, APPETITE was an original work created by the live manipulation of story, sound, and image in performed space.
Part concert, part storytelling, part film, part consumption-machine love-feast, APPETITE could be described as the re-telling of history after the invention of time-travel. It explored the nature of feedback, performance, attraction, and attention in ways that mirrored current political rhetoric and the scientific phenomena of global warming.
APPETITE was preceded by Ted Moore’s sound installation/performance, feedback vi with saxophonist Jeffrey Kyle Hutchins.
