InsideOut: a psyche and its geography
A New CD Curated by Andrew Kötting
A CD charting the inscape of one of Britain’s most celebrated artists
and experimental film makers, Andrew Kötting. The CD and accompanying
publication mirrors the ‘highly idiosyncratic’ style he has become
known for; experimenting with format, texture and sound to “transport
an audience to a place...where possibly they’ve never been before”.
Contributions from film makers, poets, artists, musicians, friends
and family create something beyond just a collection of music chosen
from personal taste, but a document of an artist’s life.
Sonic Arts Network Podcast Series
Sonic Arts Network presents a six part series of sounds that explore
the outer edges of sound and music, from artists working within the
fields of sound art, noise, electronic music, modern composition,
field recordings, drone music and anything else that straddles the
term sonic art. We will also present work that connects to the live,
education and publishing work of the organisation.
Developed through collaboration with the Sonic Arts Network,
Whitefield Schools and Centre and the London Philharmonic Orchestra,
LumiSonic is a sound application that visualises sound in real-time
in a way that allows hearing-impaired individuals to interact with a
specifically designed, graphical representation of sound. The
software has been designed and created by by Dr. Mick Grierson of
Goldsmith's College and is free to download and use.
