Listening and Found Sounds: Part 2 - Making Sound

10 June 2018


Venue: Cafe OTO Project Space, 9 Ashwin Street , Dalston, E8 3DL

Organiser: Blanc Sceol

Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell & Hannah White) are sound makers, explorers, performers, investigators and inventors. We create site-specific improvised performances, sonic topographies of ritual, assemblage, electro-acoustic soundscapes, field recordings, lo-fi electronics, vocal loops and sound poetry. Our performances are sound journeys, inspired by the sites we navigate, creating sound devices from found objects to explore our memory of place and experience of the land. We are also members of Breathing Space collective, making site-specific sound works in non-traditional spaces. We are currently studying to become Deep Listening practitioners and are both experienced workshop facilitators.

A workshop exploring creative ways to use found objects to make sound and evoke a sense of place, exploring the textures and timbres of different materials, methods of assembly and sound making potential. Participants who have joined Part 1 of the workshop (‘Exploring Place’, Saturday 9th June) will bring the objects they found on the sound walk, and there will be other objects to work with for those just attending Part 2. The workshop will culminate in a collective improvisation.
