Odd Hours is Dan West’s original music score for the Yumi Umiumare and Takashi Takiguchi's collectively devised performance for the 2021 ButohOUT! festival.
Odd Hours was a multi-layered visual and psychological labyrinth where a 20-odd heterogeneous bunch of artists performed at the rustic, industrial grounds of the Abbotsford Convent. For this work, individual notions of ‘abnormality’ were transformed into movements, sound and mask/collage work culminating in a site-specific, illusionary installation work.
Available artist direct from the Audible Artefacts Bandcamp Store.
Dan West played/made sounds on all tracks except “Things we lost together” which features Luke Howard on piano. Luke Howard appears by courtesy of Decca Music Group Limited.
Mixed by Dan West at tweakandtwang and mastered by Lachlan Carrick. Cover image by Vikk Shayan, costume and set design by Jacqui Stockdale featuring Takashi Takiguchi.
