SONIC ARTS EXHIBITION

About

IS A COLLABORATIVE TOUR SHOWCASING THE WORK OF FOUR CONTEMPORARY BRITISH ARTISTS WORKING IN THE FIELD OF SOUND ART. THE ARTISTS HAVE CURATED A COLLECTION OF SCULPTURAL ARTWORKS THAT USE SOUND AS THE PRIMARY MEDIUM, EXPLORING THE INHERENT MATERIALITY AND PHYSICALITY OF SOUND THROUGH A RANGE OF MEDIA, WORKING METHODS, AND OUTCOMES. THE WORKS UTILISE BOTH CONVENTIONAL AND UNCONVENTIONAL METHODS OF SOUND PRODUCTION; COMBINING HIGH-TECH ELECTRONICS (LOUDSPEAKERS, COMPUTERS, SENSORS, SURFACE TRANSDUCERS) AND CUSTOMISED SCULPTURAL ELEMENTS (WOOD, ROPE, SHEET METAL, BIOPLASTICS, CARBONATED LIQUIDS, PYROTECHNICS) TO DEMONSTRATE FOUR DISTINCT WAYS OF WORKING WITH SOUND IN AN ARTISTIC DISCIPLINE

Jordan Edge //

Jordan Edge is a Brighton-based sound artist, sound designer, and performer. Edge’s practice communicates the act of listening over time, and listening as a process to develop greater un- derstanding of our environmental and sonic surroundings. In his most recent work, Edge has been experimenting with industrial fans to manipulate the medium through which sound trav- els, creating reactive sound environments that explore the physical and psychological effects of noise on the human body. Edge was the recipient of the Seoul Award of Excellence for his most recent installation work, Acclimate. Edge also produces music under the alias Red Hook Grain Terminal with future releases confirmed on Always Human Tapes (US) and Audio.Visuals. Atmosphere (BE).

Joseph Higgins //

Joseph Higgins is mostly known through his DJ and production work under artist names Metrist and L.SAE. After breaking onto the scene in 2014, Higgins has performed inter- nationally and released work on labels such as Opal Tapes (UK), Fifth Wall (US), Parachute Records (IT), and Osiris Music (UK). Higgins cites his influences mostly from the world of acousmatic, electro-acoustic music, and musique concrète; this is evident
in both his electro-acoustic compositions, and more club-focussed work. Alongside his work as Metrist, Higgins has been developing his sound art practice, experimenting with multi-channel arrays and exploring the embodiment of the voice into sculptural objects. Higgins continues to release records as Metrist, with two 12” vinyl releases scheduled for 2017 alone.

Joshua Legallienne //

Through sculpture and performance, Joshua Legallienne explores the sonic qualities
of everyday materials; focusing on the creation of high-fidelity sound without the use
of loudspeakers, electronics, or conventional sources of energy. Fascinated by the quiet sounds at the threshold of perception, Legallienne constructs fragile systems that create subtle acoustic sound through physical movement. His work investigates the interplay between environmental phenomena and the physical properties of raw materials, favour- ing those which have the ability to transform over time. Legallienne’s work has performed and exhibited in Germany, Norway, and the UK. He is the sonic arts curator for Fort Process, a biennial sound art festival held in Newhaven, UK; and runs ppppp., a vinyl only record label that promotes sound art and improvised music.

Charles Pender //

Charles Pender is a sound artist whose work explores the physicality and perception of sound within an installation context. His current practice combines multi-channel sound diffusion and the manipulation of sheet metal to produce immersive and engaging experi- ences for audiences. Influenced by architectural design and acoustics, Pender creates visceral environments through the articulation of space through sound, that are as much for the body as the ear. Pender also creates music under the alias face.v, with music released on Phinery (DK) earlier this year.

Guoda Diržytė  //

Guoda Diržytė is a Lithuanian experimental instrument designer, composer, and sound artist currently based in Brighton, UK. Diržytė creates generative sound installations, centred around self-built instrumentation, augmented with electronics and kinetic elements. Her work critically examines the Eurocentric approach towards musical culture traditions, exploring the phenomena of Orientalism and exoticism, taking influence from African and Asian sonic cultures. She has a particular interest in Japanese aesthetics and its relationship to sound and music; exploring this first-hand in a six-month artist residency at Nagoya University of the Arts in 2016.
