Titre/Title/Título : Disorder, extract from audio work Spiky Black Produit par/Produced by/Productor : Alison Carlier & Amanda Loomes Pays/Country/País : UK Type/Tipo : Radio art Synopsis/Resume/Descripción : 'Spiky Black' was a collaborative digital audio work made for Metal’s digital art park - NetPark in Chalkwell Park, Southend, UK. We worked with Chalkwell Park’s gardeners, Peter Beales rose nursery in Norfolk, NetPark Wellbeing Project and Leigh Horticultural Society. Spiky Black playfully shifts register from the pragmatic to the poetic, incorporating language sourced from punk bands, historic rose catalogues, horticultural terminology and first person interviews. A retired park gardener inspired the title and concept for the artwork - he grew up a punk and imagined naming a rose ‘Spiky Black’ in memory of his youth.'Disorder' features names of punk bands and roses, grafted together over English fairground music typical of the early 20th Century when the rose garden was first planted.
