Atari Punk Girls LIVE

Behold the Noiselings! Atari Punk Girls first LIVE performance on Saturday 23 March 2019 in Norwich. These girls were incredible: building all their DIY synths from scratch and putting together a performance in almost no time at all and without ever having played with these kind of machines before! Absolute hardcore punx the lot of them, so PROUD! 💖♥️👏🌈 Big thanks to Plink Plonk and Norfolk County Council for helping BRING THE NOIZE.

INTERACT at The Sainsbury Centre

Currently beavering away putting together some work that combines drone with debris in a new collaboration with sculptor Ed Murray. I’m creating three separate but interlinked sound pieces that will emanate from inside the bodies of a collection of sculptures, Anthropocene Chimera.

We’ll be displaying them as part of INTERACT at the Sainsbury Centre, Norwich on 19th March 2019.

EDIT: Concrete Magazine reviewed the exhibition here

Some photos from the inaugural ‘The Smokehouse Presents’

The Smokehouse in Ipswich is part of the South Street Studios complex – a really important cultural hub for music in one of the UK’s most deprived areas. They are an amazing bunch who are working tirelessly to build links, foster a scene and promote music and the arts in a community where there is very little provision currently. The complex combines a recording studio and a radio station, alongside The Smokehouse venue – a place which bridges that really important gap in venues for live music in Suffolk, between pubs and 100+ capacity venues, i.e. a small but perfectly formed (and purpose-built) place to put on gigs! Also the great new PA system and lighting, as well as a decent bar and friendly engineers all deserve a high-five and a mention ;D

Last Friday, 1st March 2019, was the inaugural Smokehouse Presents gig, an event curated by the team themselves rather than as the usual venue hire-out. I was really pleased to be asked to support the brilliant Sink Ya Teeth and to share a bill with the ever-lovely Sorrdes.

Stuart Gilson just kindly sent me a few pics of my set on the night, so I thought I’d post em up here 🙂

Atari Punk Girls partner with NNSAC to deliver sound workshops in Norwich

Wicked news that Norfolk and Norwich Sonic Arts Collective are bringing Atari Punk Girls to the Shoe Factory Social Club in Norwich on Saturday 23 March. I’ll be running workshops for girls on safe soldering, making a stepped-tone generator and sound composition, all followed by an evening performance at Plink Plonk where the Atari Punk Girls will be, quite literally, bringing the noise!

This workshop uses teaching materials and printed circuit boards designed by Nina Richards and the Yorkshire Sound Women Network.
