Hannah and I are taking our Laziness Lounge to Soundling Festival this Sunday - performing it through a sonic game of cards as Sonic Sloth
With anti-work theory texts and sounds of relaxation, we'll be sounding out a space for consideration of a life without 'jobs'.
We're on at 1.30, Canvas Cafe, Brick Lane. Full details here.
There's a great line up through the rest of the festival too - Riot Ensemble & Heather Roche, Cath Roberts, Dee Byrne, Ute Kanngiesser, Crystabel Riley, Ingrid Plum, Poulomi Desai, a Free Improv Workshop, a Turntable Workshop which includes works by; Jennifer Walshe, Pauline Oliveros, Ingrid Plum and Ryoko Akama and a pop up record store on Sunday too.
The festival is celebrating new music created by non-cis-male artists as a response to growing social concerns over equality in the arts and worldwide. Full details here.
A few thoughts in pictures from visitors to our Sound Map workshop at Tate Modern's June Tate Late
Visitors we're invited to listen to two minute audio tracks of the top most spoken languages, and to respond to the question What did you hear? on a postcard, attaching it to the map. Full details > Sound Map.
Great to be apart of this LCC Spring Research Symposium this week sharing my work with the urban environment in Walking With Crickets and hearing more about the amazing A Downland Index publication by Angus Carlyle & Corinne Silva's Garden State in ref to the panel theme of Natural Environments & Atmospheres.
Lovely to meet Robbie Judkins recently and to take a cricket song sound walk around east London together talking about the sound of crickets and insects.
His brilliant radio show Animal Sounds, has a new episode #8 Insects that will air on Resonance 104.4 FM on Friday 25th Nov at 20.00. and feature a bit of our walk.
Its also going to be online afterwards on the Resonance FM Mixcloud page.
