“Allegorhythms are, poetically structured sonic systems” - bill

‘Allegorhythms’ - 7th - 23rd September 2023, Metroland Studios, as part of Collective Rhythms.

As part of Collective Rhythms, bill daggs will take over Metroland Studios gallery and communal area, where he will sonically map his family home, a 2 bed flat on Shoot-Up Hill, where he spent the first 17 years of his life, while creating a space for listening, meditation, and rest. Metroland’s old clinic building, located on Kilburn Square, will house sound sculptures that perform a trance-like, infinite textural composition - the sound of the memories that objects store, while the gallery will hold 2 large scale rhythmical paintings, and 2 sonic compositions made specifically for the occasion. A public programme will consist of performances, an artist talk with Abbas Zahedi, and a screening of a collection of daggs’ moving image work compiled as a visual mixtape and will be shown at Other Cinemas, followed by a talk with artist Shepherd Manyika. The installation aims to encourage a space focused on supporting the furthering of ones understanding of self, reflection, and possibly healing, through listening and aural encounters.
