Hackoustic Village | 'We Are Robots' Festival

The same week as returning with my piece from Manchester, the amazing people running Hackoustic invited me to be part of their 'Hackoustic Village' sound show, which was part of the We Are Robots festival running at the Truman Brewery from the 2nd – 5th November.

The space was quite dark, so we were all given brightly lit LEDs to brighten up the space, and it was a great weekend filled with crazy sound experimentation which could be heard from miles off! 

There were so many other amazing artists taking part, and I only took a very small amount of photos, but the rest of the artists showing sound pieces are listed here.

'A Grand Exposition'

This October I brought the 'Doppler Machine' (part of my Sonic Ensemble-series of sound objects) to Talbot Mill, Manchester, to an amazing festival called "A Grand Exposition", organised by the lovely people behind Cornbrook Creative.

The festival was part of the greater Manchester Science Festival and showcased a great mix of art, technology and science. The Talbot Mill venue was a lovely old cotton mill, which during the install period got gradually transformed into a playground for all kinds of fields from sound art to bio art and research on nanotechnology to mix together.
