Call & Response Workshop:

Power Relations

  14th of June, 10-1pm

Call & Response (Nabil Ahmed, Jeremy Keenan, Matt Lewis) are a London- 
based sonic collective and curatorial platform for multi-channel sound  
art and other audio-based works in an immersive environment.

In response to ‘Code of Contingency’, C&R will create a generative  
multi-channel audio work using recordings from inside the SELCHP power  
plant, a major incineration plant located in South Bermondsey near the  
Agency Gallery. Data from the power output of the plant and power  
consumption of the gallery will be used to inform the resultant audio  
of the work at any given time. As such the work is a sonic  
representation of the energy consumed by the works in the show  
throughout its duration.

As part of their participation at Agency C&R will give an artist talk  
and workshop exploring environmental thinking, composition and media  
ecology with a focus on local sound issues and data sonification with  
special emphasis on multi-channel diffusion. Using the work as a  
discursive object, participants will think about strategies for  
creating an audio installation using field recordings exploring  
aleatoric, process and generative compositional techniques.

The workshop will begin with a visit to show at Agency Gallery. It is  
open to everyone including those interested in acoustic ecology,  
generative composition, environmental art and sound art.

Participants should bring their own laptops. If participants own  
recording devices, these should be brought as well.


Please e-mail Sarah Jury at info at codeofcontingency.co.uk to reserve a  
place. A £20 suggested donation is requested to cover costs of  
materials; we will then e-mail you payment instructions. Please note  
places are limited to 12 and should be booked well in advance.

Participants should bring their own laptops. If participants own  
recording devices these should be brought as well.
