About this event

LSBU's Sonic Research Group and South Bank Sound Lab are excited to launch a series of three online Listening Sessions with invited guests, who will join us to share recent compositions or works-in-progress, and give us an insight into their creative process.

For our third and final session in this season, we've invited Rachel Aggs and Rhodri Davies.

Rachel Aggs is a musician based in Glasgow. As a solo artist and member of three active bands—Shopping, Trash Kit, and Sacred Paws—she plays guitar, violin, and sings. Her distinctive guitar playing joins the dots between post-punk and high life. Aggs has also written several zines, including I Trust My Guitar and DIY Guitar for Beginners, and since 2017 she has led a series of women and nonbinary-focused guitar workshops in the UK. Aggs has also contributed to performances of works by Pauline Oliveros, Glenn Branca, and Thurston Moore at venues such as the Tate Modern and the Barbican. The fourth Shopping album, All or Nothing, was released in February of 2020. You may also have recently heard her covering for Marc Riley's evening show on BBC 6 Music.

Have a watch / listen here:

Rhodri is immersed in the worlds of improvisation, musical experimentation, composition and contemporary classical performance. He plays harp, electric harp, live-electronics and builds wind, water, ice, dry ice and fire harp installations, and has released six solo albums.

He has performed and collaborated with a huge number of musicians including John Butcher, Phill Niblock, Sachiko M, Derek Bailey and more, continually pushing the boundaries and expectations of his practice.
