In Episode 3 of his ongoing Vibe Check radio art project, Neven Lochhead presents a mix of an album of songs titled We consent to maintain this feeling in us, written and recorded by the artist over a two-week period in summer 2020 in Tamworth, Ontario. As a series of ‘sonic sketches,’ this exploratory recording project acted as a mobiliser for Lochhead’s solo exhibition at Agnes, From the vibe out, uncovering through its creation various strategies for the video work’s attitude, spatial architecture and modes of address. Here, music-making is presented and taken up as a diagrammatic medium – a malleable and projective tool in which to test out a scalable poetics. The episode also features a promotional interlude and provisional performance scores for the artist’s upcoming closing event, Fieldnotes, to be streamed online on May 29th.
