RESONANT INCANTATIONS, 2020
7 minutes, 48 seconds, 16mm film, stereo sound
Created with MELODY WOODNUTT
Resonant Incantations is a collaborative work produced by Amias Hanley and Melody Woodnutt. In 2020, Hanley and Woodnutt were commissioned by Speak Percussion to develop a collaborative work as part of their SD Series. The resulting work brings together two distinct recursive practices into a conversation about deep time, relations of repetition, hauntologies, generation, the collapse of site, space, intensification, excess and decay.
Parts of Amias Hanley's composition were produced during their 2020 residency at Bogong Centre for Sound Culture, on Dhudhuroa and Jaitmatang Country. Meloday Woodnutt's 16mm film work was first recorded with The Weight of Mountains film residency on lands of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in in 2018.
