Picturing Sound Workshop

Join Miguel Olmo on a journey of words, sounds and images to make a soundscape inspired by Concrete Poetry, abstract shapes and Dadaism.

Work on a collaborative group project with Human in the Wire artist Miguel Olmo using everyday devices and learn how to create sound art and its origins. The workshop will teach you about the early history of sound art and you will learn how images and words can manipulate sound, using software to create a new form of art. The final collaborative work will be presented in the final week of the exhibition and uploaded to the Human in the Wire webpage.

Make a day of it and stay to watch Tully Arnot's Tech Demo at 1:30pm, and Miguel Olmo’s Limina Sound Art performance at 2:45pm.

Bookings essential. Participants will need to bring a smart phone to the workshop.

The workshop will take place at Chatswood Library's Creator Space.
