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.
I had the pleasure of curating this programme of audio interventions at City Sonic Places: experiencing the urban soundscape symposium, led by Peter Cusack & Cathy Lane at CRiSAP:
More coming soon ...
Join sound artists Hannah Kemp-Welch and Lisa Hall to reclaim your right to be idle! Relax, collaborate, and mix together sounds in this audio activation, whilst barely lifting a finger.
I had the pleasure of working on the design and build of this earlier in the month - a new sonic bike design by Kaffe Matthews and the BRI:
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.
Sound Camp is a celebration of International Dawn Chorus day, live streaming day break from around the world for the 24 hours -
"Circling the plant with the rising sun on International Dawn Chorus Day, is assembles daybreak sounds from wherever humans and non-humans meet, in forests, on urban rooftops, in the deep oceans."
Different Camps set up over the weekend across the country and host activities exploring these themes further. I'm very pleased to be involved leading sound walks at the camp in Stave Hill Ecological Park in London, alongside Ian Bolton, Kate Carr, Rebeka Clark, Tom Mudd, Maria Papadomanolaki and Chris Wood.
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.
