Further information and tickets
Explore sonic London through creative installations, intimate gigs, workshops, and talks and discover the hidden noise of our modern city. You’ll also be the first to hear Scanner’s new immersive sound installation, Bridging the World, inspired by our exhibition, Bridge. With an after-hours view of Bridge, a soundtrack co-curated by Brian Eno and Scanner, workshops, specialist talks and late night bars.
Join Helen Frosi of SoundFjord in a workshop experimenting with cross-sensory interpretation, focusing on aural perception via the medium of drawing. Respond to sonic stimuli - interpret, transpose and transmogrify the space, sonic environment and atmosphere into something visual.
"Danny McCarthy is quite simply the godfather of sound art in Ireland (he’s also her most pioneering performance artist) the man who has influenced generations of seekers in sound. I first met and chronicled Danny’s work in 2009 in what turned out to be new departure for Nova: the programme mirrored the artist in its making with hundreds of noises on and noises off.
More short portraits and interviews followed plotting his work as project curator, artist, and pundit.
However when I invited Danny to participate in this another portrait, programme on his work he stood things literally on their head: and that is what we have here in a wild mix of music(s) and voices, places real, remembered and fabricated; memories and fantasies, musings.
They say the best place to start a journey is at the place where it began: but this place is silence and that ultimately is where Danny spends most of his time, on the perimeters of noise and silence." - Bernard Clarke
