Review of Cannibal Mécanique in September issue of Wire Magazine.
Victoria Keddie Cannibal Mecanique
In Context Music DL/7”
Invested in analogue signal processing – the majority of which comes from a combination of real-time multichannel video mixing and the filming of live choreographed performances – Victoria Keddie compiled an enormous array of cameras, monitors, projections and electronics to create and record an immersive installation involving choreographed movement for performers. This two track single is an audio document of the process, demonstrating how specific and variable composition can become when left to the devices of audio and live video signals routing through one another: a noisy ballad that hisses, pulses and grinds in unseemly contortions, its pacing only capable by coaxing bizarre assemblages produced by body and machine communicating with one another. - Tabitha Piseno
