THIRD SHOWCASE ON WOMEN IN MUSIC TECHNOLOGY HITS DINA ON FRIDAY

Sharing is caring!

The third event in a series of showcases focusing on the work of women in music technology comes to DINA on Cambridge Street, Sheffield this Friday November 2.

Sound artist Vicky Clarke will be performing her work, which uses DIY electronics to create self-built instruments, as part of the Unpeeled programme of concerts, sound installations and talks.

Unpeeled has been devised by SONA, a Sheffield-based group which fosters skills, creates space, generates networks, and forges collaboration to support women in learning and experimenting with sound and music practices.

SONA co-founder Deborah Egan said: “We’re delighted to have Vicky performing as part of this series.

“Her work is influenced by brutalism, futurism and musique concrete, and explores the form and function of materials, uncovering the patterns & properties as sound sources and interfaces.”

For her most recent project, Materiality, Vicky collaborated with researchers at the National Graphene Institute in her home city of Manchester, using the super-conductive material to create a sound installation for Ableton Live, which she performed with at Music Tech Fest in Stockholm this year.

Each event at Unpeeled contains a performance by an invited musician using innovative music technology, with three more evenings lined up before the end of February 2019.

Performances are followed by an artist talk and discussion, aimed at skill sharing, and with a view to breaking down barriers to entry into music tech.

Alongside the events SONA will present their own interactive sound art installation, responding in real time to live room sound on the night.

The event on Friday is open to all, however on Thursday November 1 SONA’s monthly women-only social event takes place at DINA at 6.30pm, where the organisation will be showing some of the inner workings of their project on display.

The night on Friday begins at 7.30pm, entry is on a pay-as-you-feel basis with a suggested donation of £6.
