Space Fight is going on UK tour in November. Tour is co-produced by Sound and Music. New Space F!ght’s set and Sci-Fi EP is inspired by sci-fi novels from P.K. Dick and S. Lem. Texts used are voice samples of  Anna Edgington. These are influencing the improvisation and providing structure for the new pieces. To emphasize 3D effect of the visualisations Space F!ght is using a custom made modular scenography for visualisations/3D mapping. Scenography modules are acting as projection screens made of especially designed models.

During the forthcoming tour each show will also contain a piece made in collaboration with Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). In this piece satellite ozone data controls the improvisation and 3D visualisations.  Space F!ght is using ground level ozone data, which is the best representation of the ozone that harms human health. Since Ozone’s impact is all about location, Space F!ght is using the data from different locations around the globe with diverse level of ozone concentration; representing the ozone data rather than culture or any other characteristic of the locations. To represent each place average monthly ozone concentration is used  in a time series of 12 months.

Tour dates:

8th November – The Base, Leeds (live streaming)

10th November – Kings Place, OutHear, London

11th November – Leper Chapel, SHINDIG, with The Soft, Cambridge

18 November –  3Sixty, Ron Cooke Hub, University of York, York

20th November – Wharf Chambers, with Shatner’s Bassoon, Leeds

Those interested to find out more about the impacts of ozone are recommended to read the ‘Integrated Assessment of Black Carbon and Tropospheric Ozone‘, an international study that was co-ordinated by SEI and chaired by Dr Drew Shindell of NASA GISS.  The report was one of the key documents that lead to the establishment of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) in 2012.
