Ella Finer and ‘International Western’
The International Western is a London-based collective founded by Ella Finer, Joe Hales, Robert Jack and Flora Pitrolo. Informed by thought and practice across different fields – music, design, performance, writing – it is concerned with developing a collective form of intermedial composition. The International Western’s work to date has concentrated on mechanisms of transmission, translation and transformation of information; the collective is interested in articulating a notion of usable past capable of interfering with the structures governing the circulation of information in the present. Recent pieces include the ongoing pay-phone piece The Telephone Project, the sound-installation Cold Room (Galerie8, London, 2013) and the recording of Four in the Wave (in Verfreundungseffekt Magazine Vol. I, London, 2013).
