Boomkat Product Review:
One of the last ONO releases for the time being, presents the sonic aspects of an A/V installation/performance by Manchester’s SLIP-associated contemporary artist; Vitalija Glovackyte. A suitably bittersweet and unusually emotive addition to Micky Holland’s lovingly-curated label
“WE ARE FOR A WHILE is a sonic and visual tale about recycling. Offering new life to broken instruments, borrowed music and battered machines recovered from across UK’s dumpsters, seashores, alley ways and other odd places, the work is a deep-felt and jovial exploration of the forgotten and the unwanted. These material outcasts prove their own worth in sonic beauty against the more conventional instruments, making this work as much about the art of re-using as it is an ode to trash.
Originally a 50 min. multimedia perfjoamcne for acoustic instruments, found objects, live lighting and electronics, WE ARE FOR A WHILE was created for and first toured with Apartment House, as part of Vitalija Glovackyte’s 18-month residency with the group.”
