Artist Focus: Richard Knight

October 15, 2015 on Blog, Updates by Daisy Thirlwall

WHO IS RICHARD KNIGHT?

Richard Knight works creatively with the form of the radio show, exploring W.S. Burrough’s premise that the cut-up is a means to travel in both time and space.

Last year, his eighteen ‘The Four Points Are Thus Beheld’ radio shows for Tyneside Cinema’s Basic.fm were well received. These were a series of ‘uncurated’ explorations of sound, focusing on spoken word, poetry and field recordings.

His arts practice has developed over a period of forty years, from the early days of the London Film-makers Co-op to community arts in Lincolnshire. He is an experienced performer, graffiti artist, and a collaborator in a variety of fields. He teaches, writes and broadcasts.

The themes of his work are not always ‘conscious’, rather, they emerge through the process of the work.

 

WHAT IS RICHARD BRINGING TO FREQUENCY 15?

‘Internal Landscapes’ is a radio show that represents a complex drift though the city of Lincoln, moving through both space and time.

Through the use of the cut-up we encounter different characters, times and places in Lincoln’s history as a city, folding in characters both real and invented, incorporating moments from the festival, conversations, monologues and various field recordings which use binaural sound to create perspective and a poetic sense of the City as a Whispering Gallery of haunted memories.
