The Experimental Sounding Board: Live Sonic Drawing
The Experimental Sounding Board is a monthly drawing event involving a series of live sound-based performance interventions.
In each session, two groups will create and perform within a sonically controlled playground while other participants experiment and contribute through various forms of mark-making.
The improvised performances will explore different sonic environments, in which participants are invited to engage with drawing materials, tools and sound-producing devices, exploring different forms of gesture and expression.
The aim is to create working collaborations, and a developing pool of ideas which will realise the potential for interaction between sonic and visual modes of improvisation. Although there will be some structure and planning of these workshop events, it is expected that many of the results will be generated from spontaneous and interactive creation.
Events will take place on the first Friday of the month, the first event taking place on Friday February 1st 2013. Materials will be available, but for those who prefer to bring their own are welcome. Places will be limited to 20, with no prior experience necessary.
Venue: WestHill Community Hall , Brighton
Date: First Friday of the month
Time: 20:00 – 22:30 [20:30 first performance]
