Sound artist and experimental musician Christopher Gladwin has an exhibition opening at the Chapman Gallery this Saturday from 6.00pm. Paramusical Sound Studies with Video will include works which explore our perceptions of noise by generating amplified sound from 'everyday' objects such as... erm... sausages. Or maybe celery. There will probably be balloons and polystyrene making loud and surprising noises. It will be great.
The exhibition launch will be followed by a 'paramusical' live performance at Islington Mill from 8.00pm which will also include electro-acoustic performances from guest artists including Ben Gwilliam and Helmut Lemke. Expect the unexpected and bring your own earplugs.
In other good arts-related news, Maeve Rendle has been longlisted for the Northern Art Prize. You can check out some of Maeve's work here. Also on the list are lots of other fine folk including Simon Blackmore (who is also a member of the Owl Project), Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, and Suki Chan.
