Unusual Ingredients update

A few photos from our recent workshop with the Vegetable Orchestra in Vienna (me Caroline Hobkinson and Adam Martin), learning about ways to connect food and music…

A really productive session with a lovely bunch of people – and open, creative artists too. Looking forward to our next meeting in May!

ONE [Lotherton Hall]

Amazing fun working children and families at Lotherton Hall Crafty Families workshop as part of ONE, on 02 September.

Every version of ONE is tailored to the venue, adapted to the instruments, architecture and atmosphere of the location, but connected to the other events in the series through the music and visuals that underlie the project. This special version was designed as an interactive workshop.

Rough cuts from the ONE Crafty Families workshop at Lotherton Hall, Leeds, on 02 September. The drawings were created in response to music played on the 1865 restored Erard piano in the Drawing Room, with each image interpreted by Ben Gaunt during the workshop. Featuring improvisations by Ben Gaunt, drawing, scribbling and impromptu dancing by workshop participants, and music by Jacob Thompson-Bell (end).

Hear very different versions live on…

8 September at Iklectik, London
9 September at The Rose Hill, Brighton
15 September at Seven Arts, Leeds

 

Call for Work – Fresh Yorkshire Aires

web_logoI’m looking for work from Yorkshire-based artists and composers for Fresh Yorkshire Aires, an online exhibition I’m curating of graphic scores and visual representations of sound by artists and composers based in Yorkshire. You can submit work any time between now and 08 April 2016.

As the online collection grows, selections will be released as limited edition print collections and explored in live performances around Yorkshire by musicians including Matthew Bourne and Philip Thomas. Check the Fresh Yorkshire Aires blog for updates.

Submit your work>>

Having recently taken up a lectureship at Leeds College of Music, I’m a new Yorkshire resident, so I’m looking to survey some of the diverse range of styles and approaches composers and visual artists take towards sound, and to showcase ongoing work in the Yorkshire region!

Any Yorkshire-based artists can apply to have their work included – if you’re an illustrator, painter, photographer, textile artist, or composer making graphic scores, intricate hand-drawn manuscripts, or other visual work that relates to sound, you can submit your work. Looking forward to hearing from you…
