We invite and welcome campers, streamers and broadcasters for this event and beyond, as part of an evolving open microphone network, set to create a live archive of terrestrial soundscapes as yet unheard.See http://soundcamp.self-noise.net/ or contact email@example.com for more information http://icecast.awi.de:8000/PALAOA.MP3.m3u
Charles Weahltey. Seirenes- A self-evolving installation based on microtonal dissonance. The construction alters it’s own harmony constantly and gradually through Doppler effect and unstable hacked radio circuits. I may perform with the changing harmonies live at various points throughout the exhibition.
James Shearman is a sound artist working largely with hypnagogic guitar-based soundscapes, vocal manipulations and recitals, and sculptural noise. For this site-specific installation, “Mishkan”, he will hole up in one of the Tin Tabernacle’s cabins in order to develop a series of personal reflections and meditations on the themes of ‘portable divinity’ and ‘nautical existentialism’. This will take place across the span of the full 6 hours of the event, but with emphasis on specific, scheduled performances and collaborations.
graham dunning. site-specific installation for the LV21 decommissioned Light Ship. Viewers were invited to read aloud from a copy of Joseph Conrad’s Lord Jim in which phrases relating to either sound or sea collisions had been underlined. The signal from the microphone was amplified inside a large metal tank two decks below, picked up again by a stereo pair of microphones and fed back into the headphones, causing a long, metallic reverberation effect.http://grahamdunning.com/and-a-word-carries-far-2011/
Iris Garrelfs. “In A Day’s Work are two sound walks with a twist by Iris Garrelfs – the twist being that no actual walk takes place (although it does take you out and about), and sound is complemented by a visual component. What began as a comment on the artist’s personal experience of London as a place in time, has since mutated into a comment of a particular social, post credit crunch climate. In A Day’s Work consists of two complimentary mobile phone aided excursions to London locations, exploring two seemingly opposite environments. It is an experience that arises at the intersection between sight and sound, the virtual and the real, and invites you to linger and ponder.” http://irisgarrelfs.com/in_a_days_workraxil4 is sound and sculptural artist

The instruments are made up of tin debris – cans, scrap, wires, corrugated sheets, as well as rusty tin bells and traditional tin whistles. The performance explores the relationship between tin materials and spaces through improvisation
luke jordan. performance/installation: an unstable and fragmented body of feedback, cacophony, wires, electronic circuits, flickering lights and electroacoustic sculptural assemblages. In homage to David Tudor, and Gordon Mumma, i recreate some of their circuits and employ some of their techniques in the piece, integrating these and my own creations within an unpredictable network of sound, objects and bodies.
the result: a countercultural ethos (Turner, 2011). For Coleman, trolling partakes of “a rich aesthetic tradition of spectacle and transgression… which includes the irreverent legacy of phreakers and the hacker underground (Coleman, 2012a: p.45).
