Sounding the Space with Shirley Pegna

A work­shop explor­ing sound & the spaces and mate­ri­als around us

Opening Times
15:30 – 17:30
Through tuning into the spaces and materials around us, we will explore vocal sounds, and use our collective voice to ‘sing out the space’, through extending, amplifying, magnifying, dampening, reducing, clarifying, colouring.

Shirley Pegna is a musician and sound artist interested in sound as a material. Her work broadly explores sound and vibration travelling through solid matter, exploring it as a connecting agent over extreme long distances as well as more localised sounding events including within the body.

3.30pm - 5.30pm
