reading loop, wasteland planning, sound art

The next reading loop (Wednesday, May 2nd, 7pm, Bloc studios) will be a more experimental workshop, thinking through how a wasteland might be re-thought (and perhaps re-made?) through sound. We’ll be asking not ‘What do we want to see in this space?’, but: ‘What do we want to hear in this space?’ The discussions will feed in to the broader project to develop a live project in a wasteland in the Shalesmoor area of Sheffield.

The session will be led by Adam Denton and Richard Moran.

There is no set text as such for this week; rather, we suggest a variety of materials into which you might like to dip your toes before we start sharing and discussing our ideas!

  1. Notation as Art – this is fabulous, beautiful and utterly fascinating. Not the most intellectually rigorous response, perhaps, but am still at the ‘wow’ stage.
