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!
THU 2 FEB – ACCIDENTAL THEATRE – 8PM, £5 BOOK HERE Handmade Music is a brand-new experimental music night in Belfast specially curated by Moving on Music and The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC). Taking place on the first Thursday of the month at Accidental Theatre, the evenings will feature well-known artists, lesser-known artists, and surprise guests – all performing music from the edges of their craft. You’ll hear ‘never-before-heard’ music, and music that may never be heard again. A big element of the night is about community and space for experimental/improvised music to exist…and seeing what comes out the other side. Sets are short, there is time to chat and space to move around. It’s £5 and BYO.
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.
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.
