Atari Punk Girls: SPILL Commission 2021

Atari Punk Girls is a process-led sonic arts performance project. We harness the enabling ethic of punk and the power of noise to inspire women and girls to foster their own sonic arts practice. APG welcomes gender minority participants.

SPILL Commission 2021 R&D work at Think Tank, Ipswich

Some of our 2021 R&D work has been presented as a bespoke Virtual Reality spatial sound piece. You can view ‘Garden of Bloop’ on Mozilla Hubs here using either a screen-device or a VR headset.

Early iteration of the project for Eastern Ear @ Shoe Factory, Norwich, 2019

In its early iterations, Atari Punk Girls used printed circuit boards and teaching materials developed by Nina Richards and the Yorkshire Sound Women Network. Thank you for inspiring the OG APG!

Since 2018 APG is grateful to have been supported by: Norfolk County Council, British Science Week, Brighton Modular Festival, Thonk, CLIP, BLOC:Arts, Eastern Ear, SPILL Festival, and Arts Council England.
