Usurp’s “PhonoPollock” commission at The Optophonic Workshop – Tramlines Fringe Festival

Saturday 26 July 2014

2pm - 11pm

What might have Jackson Pollock’s canvas sounded like while he thrust, dripped and splattered paint on it? Using a variety of paints and a large stretched sonic canvas, the Conspirators of Pleasure (Poulomi Desai and Simon Underwood) will lead a workshop to find out. Visitors will become performers, the textural sounds created will be processed and performed live, and projected. This is a new project commissioned by Peak to Signal Noise.

The OptoPhonic Workshop – a day of participatory workshops and exploratory performances combining film and sonic experiment and hands-on creative contagion for all. Also featuring workshops and performances by Adam Bohman, Sharon Gal, Heather Leigh, Lorah-Pierre, Rhodri-Davies, Murray-Royston-Ward, Blood-Stereo, Human-Heads, Mick-Beck, Luke-Poot, Blue Yodel and McWatt/Bettany.

Part of the Tramlines Fringe Festival at Montgomery Theatre Studio, Sheffield and organised by Peak Signal 2 Noise.

The Montgomery, Surrey Street, Sheffield, S1 2LG
