Cuteness Forensics

Tim Spooner & Tom Richards

Tom Richards and Tim Spooner combine music and sculpture in this visual and sonic escapade. Performing with soft materials and hardware – velvet, electronics, sponge, lead, record players – they create a system which monitors and responds to itself.

Tim demonstrates and dissects ambiguous sculptures and wire entrails against Tom’s eerie, clanging soundscape, creating a visceral and alluring atmosphere. Small objects are magnified and manipulated into something sonically big and overwhelming. Vulnerability and intimacy are exposed among catastrophic sound effects.

This abstract autopsy opens things up and reveals something tender and empathic in material. In this weird world, the internal is externalised, soft tissues meet jagged edges and soppy sculptures move to inflexible rhythms.

“Tim Spooner is unclassifiable – free from any preconceived ideas and expectations.” 
– Renaud Herbin, Director TJP Strasbourg

“A sharp, metallic taste you’re not expecting.”
– Ben Kulvichit, Exeunt Magazine on Cuteness Forensics

Cuteness Forensics is what I imagine might happen if all the gathered small furry animals were to suddenly die and John Cage to enter the cave to experiment with their corpses.” 
 – Ben Kulvichit, Exeunt Magazine on Cuteness Forensics 

“It’s a child’s playground, an artificial habitat, a morgue, a laboratory, a crime scene, all of those things at once."
– Ben Kulvichit, Exeunt Magazine on Cuteness Forensics
