When loud music is played quietly – at its lowest possible volume – is it still loud music? “Small Assembled Sounds” is a collage of quiet-loud music played on unamplified turntables.
Phil Maguire is a fiercely experimental electronic musician, improvisor and sound artist. Malfunction permeates his music, utilising sine tone oscillators, noise, found sound, and obsolete audio technology to create intimate, engrossing sonic environments.
Eleanor Cully is a composer and vocalist based in Huddersfield. She was born in 1992.
John Macedo is a sound artist and performer from London. He has incorporated everything from acoustic instruments and environmental sound to analogue and computer synthesis into his recorded works, live performances and sound installations.
Rie Nakajima is a Japanese artist working with installations and performances that produce sound. Her works are most often composed in direct response to unique architectural spaces using a combination of kinetic devices and found objects.
David Bloor explores ideas around connection to each other in community, to the past in memory and to the world in information. Sound generation through happy accident or influence of chaos in feedback, the physical influence of electrical components and the degredation caused by time and physical process.
