Event description
A weekend of sound, performance and close listening practice.

About this event

We’re delighted to usher in the summer with a weekend of celebration, performance and sharing. This year’s programme runs from 24th - 26th June, with a focus on close listening and reflection on the possibilities of expansive communication with the world around us.

On Friday evening we begin with a ritual fire and communal meal. Saturday will form our rescheduled listening event: sound re-dug. This public event brings together four artists working across sound, installation, radio broadcasts and performance (see below for more info). On Sunday, BOARC will focus on it’s own substrate: there’ll be workshop offerings by participants, and an affiliates meeting that will shape the organisation in the upcoming months.

Saturday's sound re-dug line-up:

ASHLEY HOLMES

http://www.ashleyholmes.co.uk/

Ashley Holmes is a multidisciplinary artist based in Sheffield working across sound, installation, radio broadcasts and performance. His practice is informed by ideas of ancestral transmission and collective memory to explore the ways sound recordings, music and oral histories document a relationship between race and the environment. He hosts Tough Matter, a monthly broadcast on NTS Radio and also facilitates Open Deck - a series of gatherings giving space to collectively listen and hold discursive space around relationships to sound.

DIALECT (ANDREW PM HUNT)

https://www.andrewpmhunt.com/dialect

Andrew PM Hunt, aka Dialect, is a composer and musician based in Liverpool whose work encompasses a multiplicity of approaches including field recording, improvisation and computer processing to produce delicate compositions which hint at the interdependent complexity of the natural world. His recent album "Under~Between" (RVNG Intl, 2021) was recorded with new music group Immix Ensemble and fuses electroacoustic techniques with chamber music instrumentation, drawing on his background as a songwriter to produce innovative work with a deeply emotive core. Current preoccupations include faith, religion and their relationship to modern ethics and ecology. As someone born on The Wirral he is also excited to explore the resonant iconography of his childhood, in particular Bidston Hill itself.

KELLY JAYNE JONES

https://www.kellyjaynejones.org/info

Kelly Jayne Jones is a Manchester based artist making work that combines performance, installation and sound. She is mostly self taught and began working in DIY experimental noise music and her practice has expanded to include dance, gesture, sonic drawings, stone sculpture and film scores. She is interested in creating a multi-sensory experience that creates possible conditions for communication and exchange. Creating contemporary zones bordering quantum fictions, where communion may have the potential to explore our inner dimensions.

QUIETING

https://vimeo.com/626400691

Recently relocated to her birthplace in the Northwest of the UK, Maeve Devine is a multi-instrumentalist, music producer visual artist and DJ whose work leans towards experimental electronic and dance floor orientated sounds. She finds fascination in movement and texture and has recently begun to include found sounds, field recordings, oral history interviews and randomly generated sequencers into her practice. With an extensive background as a guitarist, vocalist and drummer in the Uk’s punk, hardcore and DIY indie scenes Maeve’s music is infused with an urgency to connect people, places and politics at the intersection of poly rhythm and throbbing psychedelic soundscapes.
