The If Wet 2014 Tour is looming large! We set off around the country on the 21st of June, for events on consecutive weekends…
We will kick things off, demonstrating the latest work on our Giant Feedback Organ. Originally commissioned by the Southbank Centre, we have continued to develop the sounds this beast can produce and we will share these with you…
Next up we have Phil Powell and Shaun Blezard talking about their duo Hugs Bison, which they describe as the collaboration of a musician with an interest in technology, and a technologist with an interest in music.
They’ll demonstrate the devices, apps and techniques they use, and how they’ve evolved over time as the technology has matured. They’ll talk about the setup they are using to take their gigs “off grid” and ways to collaborate remotely with other artists.
For the second presentation in Cumbria we are delighted to have Lee Patterson presenting his work.
Lee will explore the sonic potential of his unique instrumentation. From effervescent salts to amplified springs and dry rock chalk to burning nuts, he will open up and play the usually inaudible, microscopic sounds emitted by otherwise mute devices and objects. Sam was lucky enough to witness the outcomes at Monomania Festival earlier this year. You are in for an aural treat.
All being well, this will be accompanied by the usual local ale, grub and cake. JOIN US.
