Sounds is curated by Phoenix artist, scientist and musician Ed Briggs. He works with ‘theatrical substances’ such as electronics, instruments, biological material, noxious, volatile chemicals, lasers and lenses to make sound and performance. He is currently working on an AHRC funded practice-based PhD looking at artists re-enacting and modifying scientific experimental practice.
On 16 October we’ll be joined by Bobby Barry. Bobby makes improvised electronic music mostly using mundane household objects – a shaver, electric toothbrush, pencil sharpener – eking out rich textures and layered harmonies from the waves of electromagnetic resonance emitted by them. An album of collaged field recordings, Through Acheron, was recently released by WIAIWYA Records, and, with the duo, Far Rainbow, Bobby has also released several albums through labels including Fractal Meat Cuts, Slightly Off Kilter and Linear Obsessional.

Fracture Patterns is a live collaboration between UK artist duo Semiconductor and New York musician and producer Eartheater.
Show 8 – 10.30pm
This original commission by the Outlands Network combines large-scale multi-channel video works by Semiconductor with a new live soundtrack and performance by Eartheater, fusing both into a compelling theatrical production.
Eartheater explores experimental pop and fantasy combining her genre-breaking musical production with a singular visual aesthetic. Semiconductor’s visually and intellectually engaging artworks explore the material nature of our world and how we experience it through the lenses of science and technology.
Together, they invite audiences into the noise field, as they explore the collision and collusion of their respective practices.
A big congratulations to our L5 DMSA students Jade Gunner, Jordan McDermott and Josh Bell who composed the soundtrack for a short film made by UoB L6 Graphics-Illustration student Jack Taylor. The film which was awarded the prize, and will run throughout the expo – an international event that attracts professional designers from across the world – runs May 14-17.
Many of our L6 students are featured in the university’s official blog as part of a Graduate Show special.
The special features aim to offer a pre-taster to the university’s upcoming Graduate Show (1-9 June) and to showcase the breadth of research and practice currently undertaken by the university’s creative student community.
