Full of Noises - Archive Night #2
With: Leslie Deere, Helen Petts, Mary Stark, These Feathers Have Plumes & FoN book launch
Islington Mil, Salford
Sat 8th Oct, 19:30 - 22:30
Starting life in the former canteen building of a Trident submarine plant in 2009, Cumbria’s Full of Noises has since presented new work by over two hundred sound artists, composers and musicians. To celebrate the launch of a publication looking back at the festival’s first seven years, we’re bringing Full of Noises to Islington Mill for a special event featuring film screenings and live performances.
Artist filmmaker Helen Petts presents a new film compiled from archive footage alongside a film portrait of Lol Coxhill commissioned for FoN in 2013. Live performances come from These Feathers Have Plumes (Andie Brown), creating sonic landscapes from glass and electronics, gesture based live sound from Leslie Deere and a 16mm film performance exploring optical sound created from fabric and stitch patterns by Mary Stark.
Join us to relive some of the festival’s many strange and beautiful moments, or if you’ve never made it as far as Barrow-in-Furness, sample a few of the exciting things that have been going on in our remote corner of the world...
