Shane Cooper playing Gerhard Marx’s Vehicle during workshops towards Season 4.
Vehicle works through a similar strategy of dissection, reassembly and hybridization. It is a project of ‘musical forensics’ in which strings are used to see beyond the immediacy of the object, to peep below its surface, to ‘sound things out’. This is done through the extraordinary improvisational exploration of celebrated musicians and collaborators Shane Cooper and Kyle Shepherd. Writer and performer Toast Coetzer’s evocative prose and vocals further layers Vehicle’s rich, moving and transportative sound world.
