As the festival looms ever closer, ATTN Magazine have interviewed Lost Property’s very own Daniel W J Mackenzie about the festival and the peculiar characteristics of Newhaven Fort.
“The idea was to programme the line up based upon how they would approach the site, or how their material would be affected by its spatial, psychological and acoustic properties. In some cases there was an aesthetic decision to match an artist’s work with the fort – with Thomas Köner for example, who has a slow, dense sound that I think really suits the imposing architecture and subterranean atmosphere – but in others it was more about the opposite, the contrast. Like the programme of contemporary composition in the Grand Magazine… it’s far from a concert hall.”
