PUCTURE KIT DEMO | 27 NOVEMBER 2017 | PERFORMANCE STUDIO | 4:30-6:30PM

Dave Osborne is Puncture Kit…a live drummer and electronic composer. His bicycle is his transport and drum kit and on 27th November, he’ll be setting up in the Performance Studio to give you a live demo.

You are invited to submit a work to be used in the session. Please send your compositions/field recordings and loops to m.e.papadomanolaki@brighton.ac.uk by no later than 23/11/17.

Dave has performed for the Brits, Glastonbury, The Tour de France and many other events throughout the world. He loves the outdoors and is also regularly seen performing in the streets both here in Brighton and in London.

For the DMSA demo, he has recently written a bunch of new electronic music…weaving in and out between many different time signatures and tempos…he loves the challenge of making sometimes complex timings sound danceable!
As an extra experimental side to the performance, Dave will be using abelton to trigger an array of sounds/ effects whilst improvising with his live beats.

[MAP]

The Digital music and Sound Arts course (School of Media, University of Brighton) teams up with Echoes.xyz to launch a new mobile phone audiowalk showcasing selected works by current staff and students in the course. The launch event is part of the Brighton Digital Festival 2017 programme and is supported by the University of Brighton’s School of Media.

For ReHear, the artists chose a specific site to locate their work within and to give it a new life and identity. ReHear places these pieces in real locations across Brighton and asks us to hear again but differently. Using a mobile phone and a pair of headphones, anyone can walk around and experience the city anew.

On the 29th of September, ReHear will have its official launch as part of a special event where members of the audience can meet the artists and the app developers and learn more about the project, the technology behind it and the process of creating it. They will then have the chance to use their mobile phones to experience the project.

Featured artists:

Jean Martin, Charles Pender, Mandie Brooks , Sonny Bacon, Jedd Winterburn, Olivia Louvel, Brianna Leeds, Samirah Roye,  Jordan Edge, Steven Mallinder, Maria Papadomanolaki, Jeph Vanger.

Please bring a mobile phone with WiFi/3G/4G capabilities and a pair of headphones.

The Digital Music and Sound Arts course explores innovative AV media, music/sound arts practices and productions.

See/Hear: Alumni Showcase | A thing heard. four ways of listening

Jordan Edge, Joseph Higgins, Charles Pender, Joshua Legallienne with Guoda Dirzyte on selected dates will embark on a UK/DE Tour during the month of August.

About the tour

A Thing Heard: Four Ways of Listening is a collaborative tour showcasing the work of four contemporary British artists working in the field of sound art. The artists have curated a collection of sculptural artworks that use sound as the primary medium, exploring the inherent materiality and physicality of sound through a range of media, working methods, and outcomes.

The works utilise both conventional and unconventional methods of sound production; combining high-tech electronics (loudspeakers, computers, sensors, surface transducers) and customised sculptural elements (wood, rope, sheet metal, bioplastics, carbonated liquids, pyrotechnics) to demonstrate four distinct ways of working with sound in an artistic discipline.

Jordan Edge’s Acclimate is a temperature-reactive sound installation that uses industrial fans and loudspeakers to explore the physical and psychological effects of noise on the human body. Joseph Higgins’ Many Gods, Many Voices is an electro-acoustic composition and sound installation, using a bespoke sonic table to embody the ‘otherness’ of the human voice. Joshua Legallienne’s Action Without Action is a series of kinetic sculptures that produce acoustic sound without the use of loudspeakers, electronics, or conventional sources of energy. Charles Pender’s Maelström is an immersive multi-channel installation using surface transducers to propagate sound into suspended sheets of metal.

All four artists currently live and work in Brighton, UK.
