Partner event: Lee Patterson sound performance
Time & Location
About the Event
All the Shapes host a performance from local sound artist and performer Lee Patterson called Terrain, who uses amplified devices and hand-built instruments that interact with environments and objects, in order to create improvised compositions for performance. Ephemera from this performance will be added as an exhibiton documenting the performance. By using sound recording as a form of ear training, Patterson has devised and performs with a selection of amplified devices and processes. Whether working live with amplification or recording within an environment, he has pioneered a range of methods to produce or uncover complex sound in unexpected places. From rock chalk to springs, from burning nuts to aquatic plants and insects, he eavesdrops upon and makes a novelty of playing objects and situations otherwise considered mute. His collaborators have included some of todays most respected experimental musicians and filmmakers and his works have featured on UK television, BBC Radios 3, 4 and 6, Resonance FM and on radio stations worldwide. He lives and works in Prestwich, Manchester, UK.
Doors open at 6:30 for Lee Patterson's performance. Free event, no booking required.
