SHOWCASE OF CONTEMPORARY SOUND ART
Artists: Jordan Edge // Joseph Higgins // Joshua Legallienne // Charles Pender.
+ Cascabel Dj Set.

A Thing Heard: Four Ways of Listening 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’s Acclimate is a temperature-reactive sound installation that uses industrial fans and loudspeakers to explore the physical and psychological effects of noise on the human body.

Joseph Higgins’ Many Gods, Many Voices is an electro-acoustic composition and sound installation, using a bespoke sonic table to embody the ‘otherness’ of the human voice.

Joshua Legallienne’s Action Without Action is a series of kinetic sculptures that produce acoustic sound without the use of loudspeakers, electronics, or conventional sources of energy.

Charles Pender’s Maelström is an immersive multi-channel installation using surface transducers to propagate sound into suspended sheets of metal.

The artists will install, present, and de-install the works in each venue within the timeframe of a single evening. Originally developed as long-form installations, the works have been adapted for the concert format specifically for this tour. By showcasing the work in this context, the artists hope the tour will bring sonic arts to a wider, more inclusive, audience.

All four artists currently live and work in Brighton, UK.
