Media Art Bath presents Staging Sound 2.0, an exploration of new artistic activities which use DIY methods to produce, record and broadcast sound art and music and its relationship with the internet in sharing music and ideas. The hands-on programme focuses on three strands of DIY sound production: ‘Field’, ‘Scavenged’ and ‘Homemade’ and features a two day workshop with Chris Watson along with a new work by artist Matthew Olden amongst other events open to the public to participate in.

Secret Location in Bath City Centre
Media Art Bath and Dorkbot Bristol invite makers, tinkerers and performers of all things both electronic and acoustic that make music, sound and noise to come along to the STAGING SOUND 2.0 Sound Hack and participate in a citywide Guerilla Busking infiltration.
The theme /HOMEMADE/ can be broadly interpreted to include any music production that is out of the ordinary, cobbled together, improvised, low cost, unpredictable and even haphazard in nature. For the Sound Hack we’re interested in all things /HOMEMADE/ and improvised, to include -
Modding, hacking and reinventing
Homemade acoustic instruments of all shapes and sizes
Solar/wind/bike powered instruments and sound systems
DIY electronic tinkering
…and anything else you’ve made!
If it was made in your bedroom or on your kitchen table, then it’s just what we’re looking for, the /HOMEMADE/ Dorkbot Bristol Sound Hack will be a chance for you to come along, show what you’ve got, share tips and ideas with Dorkbot Bristol and other makers, demo your idea or just get inspired!
For Guerilla Busking we’re looking for DIY sound and music-makers to infiltrate the City and perform with all manner of musical oddities in some of Bath’s lesser known nooks and crannies,
Guerilla Busking explores all of the STAGING SOUND 2.0 themes –/FIELD/SCAVENGED/HOMEMADE/ – from electronic gadgetry, DIY musical instruments to scavenged sounds, mixed up field recordings and more, bring what you want… Surprise us!
