This is ‘Garden of Bloop’, a VR sound installation using sounds made by our young participants during the SPILL R&D residency. The aesthetic was inspired by the video of the girls engrossed playing their self-built instruments on the lawn outside during a break. You can use your pointer to press ‘play’ on the video screen to start it. Each bespoke-made flower in the room contains sounds, from bloinks to drones, as well as some bubbles and shooting stars showcasing our sound experiments made using different kinds of microphones. Seek out the binaural recordings of the group eating popping candy and pouring fizzy pop into a fishbowl full of hydrophones. Track down the mysterious eerie tones emanating from the crystal plant at the furthest end of the room.

Atari Punk World hubspace is co-created by Loula Yorke, Emily Godden (Virtually There Studios) and Dave Stitch, using material composed by Atari Punk Girls Ipswich 2021.

A huge thank you to our partners Arts Council England, SPILL Festival of Performance, Thonk, Ipswich Borough Council and Teenage Engineering, without whose support this fantastic project would not have been possible.

Roll on the Autumn 2021 when a new group of girls will be joining our original R&D group for another run of workshops – building synths, making beats, writing and performing text scores, messing about with lasers, documenting and probing the soundworlds around us – all culminating in a live perfomance ‘THE CHURCH OF TECHNO’ at St Clements Church, Ipswich on 30 October as part of SPILL 2021!
