International Synth Design Hackathon

Design and build your very own sound experiences in this unique collaborative event run in conjunction with Belfast-based sound art collective, Tone Burst. Using the very latest technology, you’ll be free to explore your creative ideas, with help from the team as required. All materials and equipment will be provided and no technical experience is needed, although a passion for sound and music-making is, of course, essential!

Supported by Cycling 74, Electrosmith and Synthux Academy, this event will give you the run-down on a range of cutting-edge digital fabrication technologies, including 3D printers and laser-cutting machines. Come along and see what sounds emerge!

The Black Dreams – Crescent Arts Centre 281021

Poetry, prose, and drama to celebrate the launch of The Black Dreams: Strange Stories from Northern Ireland (Blackstaff, 2021).

With special guest Reggie Chamberlain-King, editor of the anthology The Black Dreams: Strange Stories from Northern Ireland, published by Blackstaff Press earlier this month. 

Reggie will be introducing some contributors to the anthology from the Seamus Heaney Centre, including Sam Thompson, Aislinn Clarke, and Emma Devlin. There will be live musical accompaniment to some of the readings, and the opportunity to buy the book on the night. 

I’ll be helping provide sound accompanyment.
