Whitworth Young Contemporaries workshop

“sounds like two robots having a conversation”

wpid-imag2191.jpgHow can you listen to artworks? Noise Orchestra visited Whitworth Young Contemporaries this week to work with the group to create electronic sounds inspired by the artworks at the Whitworth gallery in Manchester. We started off exploring the M+Sigg exhibition and looking at the exhibits for visual rythmns that could be interepreted as musical scores. From these drawings we made paper stencils or hand drawn illustrations and then the noise began! The group learnt how to use arduino circuitry to build light theremins that convert patterns and images into sounds. The group loved the rhythms we had a mini rave in the learning studio to the minimal techno sounds!
