Catalyst Audio Tracks is a Catalyst Members series that focuses on the world of sound art. We reached out to our members to submit work in Drone, Noise, Ambient, Electroacoustic, Field Recording, Synthesis Exploration, or All/None-of-the-above and this compilation is the result.
This event is the presentation of that compilation and it takes place in the Sonic Arts Research Centre‘s very own Sonic Laboratory. A specialist acoustic space designed with 48 loudspeakers, strategically located, will project and move sounds throughout the space, including underneath the audience.
Featuring work from: Barry Cullen, Hadi Bastani, Chris Steenson Dan Shipsides, Jordan Hutchings, Dara Flanagan, Noel Hensey, Sarah Lundy, Vasiliki Stasinaki, Gross Net, Camilla Fanning, Ben Fletcher, Seamus Harahan, Joey O’Gorman, Petra Dominova, Stephen Todd

In the summer of 2017 a group of artists based in Belfast formed UMBRELLA. The group is a collective that aims to promote arts practices related to sound, listening and aural environments. Meeting monthly at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University Belfast, the group seeks to collaborate on new works and present public events that feature aurally-engaged artworks.
