UK Young Artists Workshop and Performance

Transformation of the Mind

I was guest artist at the UKYA event in Derby back in October. The concert was the first performance with Ola Szmidt of our album Transformation of the Mind and we had a great audience of UKYA artists. During the day I also gave a soundscape workshop for artists taking part in the UKYA event.

After a brief introduction to soundscape music, participants went out into derby to record the sounds of the city, capturing the natural soundscape. Participant used portable field recorders and worked in groups to record and create sounds. They were then taught how to edit their sounds into a composition using garage band and shared the tracks with the group. Many of the artists were from visual arts backgrounds, but had an interest in sound and enjoyed working with another medium.
