Manchester audio visual venue and community hub Texture invited us to come and present our work in an artist talk as part of their Testcard programe. Testcard is a platform that showcases projects working at the intersection of digital technology and audio visual artwork. At the event we presented the background to Noise Orchestra and work on our Innovate R+D project including footage from the STEIM residency developing light sensors and advancements in our sonic circuitry. With over sixty people in attendance we had lots of interest from Manchester School of Art students and the arts and tech community in Manchester. We will be working with Texture in 2017 to showcase/demo the Noise Machines in April with artists and musicians to mark the end of our second stage of development.
