And simple instrument builds with Vulpestruments
Artist Stephen Shiell will present work-in-progress from ongoing research & development residency at St Augustine’s Tower in Hackney with sound collective Breathing Space. He has hacked the 400 year old clock in the tower with contact mics and Max to create a composition/sound installation. He will also present a short performance with tick, metal and voice, inspired by the explorations of the residency.
Tim Yates, Director for Hackoustic, will be presenting his Curio installation, an exploration of the sounds of common objects using an innovative and accessible system of sensors and solenoids to play and strike noise making objects.
Nick Murray grew up in London, where his body still resides.
Currently a composer and performer, Nick’s work explores communication loss through doctored instruments and redundant technology. For Hackoustic, he will present a variety of altered cassette devices, using samples and created sounds to build a short soundscape performance.
Robert Blaauboer will present his latest project, The Weather Machine, which is an interactive installation using old Marconi machinery. The original knobs and dials now control an interactive weather soundscape spanning a range of weather conditions.
