The Experimental Sounding Board

 

The Experimental Sounding Board
Live Sonic Drawing

The Experimental Sounding Board is a platform, hosting events which bring together Art, sound, performance and technology. The events have been created to allow space for interactions, collaborations and experimentation, bringing people together in different research fields, technical abilities and locations; internationally and nationally.

The baseline of the events looks at the network and emergence which may resonant from experimentation, improvisation and collaboration.

Through curating, facilitating and collaborating with individuals who have not worked together before via the internet, the work then becomes realised within a tangible context.

The Experimental Sounding Board will host two performance groups, creating and performing within a sonically controlled playground. The improvise performances will explore different sonic environments in which participants are invited to engage with drawing materials, tools and sound-producing devices, exploring different forms of gesture and expression.

Live Sonic Drawing iii

John M Bowers + Debbie Guinnane
John M. Bowers works with home-brew electronics, self-made instruments and reconstructions of antique image and sound-making devices, alongside contemporary digital technology. He is concerned with making performance environments, which combine sound, vision and human gesture at a fundamental material level. His work includes projects to build a music synthesizer using 19th century techniques (The Victorian Synthesizer), explorations of random circuitry (Ohm-My-God), a miniaturisation of Brion Gysin and Ian Sommerville’s Dreamachine (My Little Dreamachine), and a reconstruction of early television technology (This Nightlife Instrument). John has been artist in residence at Fylkingen, Stockholm. He is co-founder of the Onoma Research label and also plays electric guitar in the fundamentalist noise rock band Tonesucker.
In 2011, he has given intermedia performances (X Transductions) working with live computer graphics, video, sensor systems and sound synthesis at festivals in London and Vancouver, and at Electropixel, Nantes. He recently worked with the Pacitti Company composing for a massed orchestra of electric guitarists as part of the UK’s Cultural Olympiad and is currently touring with the Rambert Dance Company performing David Tudor’s music to Merce Cunningham’s Rainforest. He is part of the Interaction Research Studio, Department of Design, Goldsmiths, University of London, and was a contributor to the Studio’s Prayer Companion, currently on exhibition at MoMA, New York.

Debbie Guinnane is a visual artist, researching into cross-disciplinary mediums that try to accommodate experience with an automatic response in live art. Using this first encounter with the live experience as a primary resource of information and a malleable sculptural material, through formulations of representation, her work begins with the process of the encounter and through the use of writing, language and reinterpretation. She follows the material and actions of the performance to a point of ‘transformation’. Currently pursuing a Masters in Visual Arts Practice (MAVIS), IADT, Dublin, Debbie has performed and written nationally and internationally. She is also a member of the art collective SITEATION, a performance art group of six performance artists.

‘I see through the words I use to transcribe. I write what I see and I see what I write. I am a hunter. I work within the practice of pursuit of any living things, hunting wild-life or feral animals for recreation or trade.  I engage with the performance artist through the process of writing: documenting the experience by interpretating it through language.’ -

Ewa Justka + Lorah Pierre
Ewa Justka is a polish electronic artist based in London. She currently studies BA Sound Arts & Design at LCC. Her work is focused on performative and philosophical aspects of ‘noise’. Ewa is interested in working with hand made electronics such as sensors and synthesizers, as well as traditional instruments. Her current preoccupations mostly concern the possible inter-relationship between light/sound and an acoustic instrument (accordion)/electronic devices.

Lorah Pierre is a UK artist and musician. Her practice utilises sounds physical and intrusive affect with in a space to engage with the audience by introducing live feeds and multi-channels within her installations and performances.
Taking inspiration from the fields of science has lead to a number of interdisciplinary approaches within her works. Research within neural and social science, and regular workshop participation in electronics has lead to collaborations with scientists, nurses and musicians.

Lorah has installed and performed work nationally and internationally; [SPACE]/Permacultures, London, UK; City of Women Festival, Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Lorah is currently studying an MA in Fine Art at the University of Brighton.
