Titled ‘Sonic Disobedience’ this skills building workshop will explore making radio transmitters, signal jammers, noise machines for public address and other speculative devices.
Participants will learn to make their own sounds using low cost DIY materials and techniques especially suitable for public places, meetings, protests and other artistic and social interventions.
The workshop will take place both at no.w.here and in the surrounding streets and will culminate in a performance collectively created by the workshop participants.
No previous experience of soldering or electronics is necessary.
The teacher, Ryan Jordan, is an electronic artist conducting experiments in derelict electronics, possession trance, retro-death-telegraphy and hylozoistic neural computation. His work focuses on self built hardware, signal aesthetics, and the physical/material nature of experience.
The workshop is presented by Call & Response, an independent sonic arts collective, serving as a focus for sound arts practice in London reflecting the emerging interest in the use of the auditory in contemporary art.
