A couple of projects that I’ve recently been involved in are now up online. Firstly, in April I contributed to a fascinating evening held at Inspace as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival, which investigated the science of beverage production (specifically beer, coffee, and bitters). In collaboration with Jamie Carmichael, I produced an audio-visual installation focused on beer production in Alloa, Scotland. Click here for more information.
Secondly, I was lucky to be invited to contribute to the TIK Festival in Brussels, which ran across various venues in the city centre between 11th and 13th of May. Across the three days about 50 artists and performers were involved in creating artworks, running workshops and demonstrations, leading discussions, and putting on concerts. For my part, I created a sound map of neighbourhoods to the north of where the Festival was taking place, and subsequently installed the sound map in Q-02 (the sound map is now accessible here). Secondly, on the afternoon of the 13th, I led a silent soundwalk from Q-02 to Thurn & Taxis, re-tracing the route I had walked in June and October of 2011. Details of this return walk can be found here.
Additionally, I contributed to a TIK Festival publication with a short piece on field recording and sound maps. While not nearly as aesthetically pleasing as the boxed publication (pictured above), the online version can be found here, and my piece here.
