As part of the Sounds Like Her exhibition at the New Art Exchange (NAE) in Nottingham I was commissioned to run a two-day workshop with 15 teenage girls from the Nottingham Girls Academy.
Over the two days the girls recorded the soundscape of Nottingham, created sound maps, learned about the social and cultural significance of sound, explored women’s contribution to music and sound art, learned how to create graphic scores for voice and electronics, performed live with voice and finally generated performances of their score using a granular synthesis application. It was a pretty busy two days, bit a fantastic experience for all. NAE were brilliant in supporting this event, providing a space and technology for all the activities and gorgeous tasty food for each day.
See below examples of the activities and work produced by the girls.
