#018 oto-date Newcastle Akio Suzuki

At the end of March I spent 5 days volunteering at AV Festival 14: Extraction, in Newcastle. I spent these days invigilating gallery exhibitions and films by Akio Suzuki, Wang Bing, Ana Molska, Adrien Lecouturier, Victor Lopes and Lara Almarcegui. I also volunteered at a stunning performance by Richard Skelton and the Elysian Quartet at Brinkburn Priory. As part of the festival, Akio Suzuki spray painted his oto-date logo at points in the city he deemed interesting listening points, and produced a map of the points. I used this map to direct myself around the city, and took some recordings at each point.
