Colour Out of Space at a Distance
International Festival of
Experimental Sound and Art

Safe and well and getting set for the great unlocking? If the stars align we're hoping to get Colour Out of Space (9) back on the road a little later in the year. In the meantime with Plague Time Television you can experience how lockdown has affected some of your favourite soundmakers from around the globe. All five episodes, with almost 150 artists, are online now for further viewing and future study. A big thanks to everyone who’ve shared their shut-in moments, and to those airing live performances from the last festival (via Live in your Head). See you soon!

UNIA LOIMUSSA + WHAT WAS MUSIC?

Two exhibitions ran throughout the festival; in ONCA, we were thrilled to present Unia Loimussa (Dreams inside a Blaze) - the first ever UK exhibition from visual artist, musician and all round Finnish underground lynchpin Jan Anderzen. In Jubilee Library, What Was Music? featured twelve sound-collages created by local schoolchildren using samples sent from artists around the world. Organised by Ian Murphy (Hobo Sonn) workshops were led by Murphy and Duncan Harrison. Listen in below to all recordings (or open in new window). Read more from both exhibitions here

 

SONIC ARTS TRAIL

The weekend saw the first COOS daytime sonic-arts trail, featuring installations and site specific performances in Brighton landmarks including The Pepperpot with Ian Helliwell, hidden, little known folly The Tarner Tower with Alice Kemp, and London Rd’s bustling Open Market with Ryoko Akama (above). Insights from (almost) all events are captured in Matt Dalby's weekend audio diary here.

LIVE FROM LUBBERLAND
Ash Reid & Ali Robertson were in residence at Phoenix Brighton over the weekend with ‘In The Future You’ll Be Able To Get All The Expensive Designer Wallpaper That Your Heart Desires For Free: Live from Lubberland’ - a radio series for and from the future. Working with audience members and COOS artists, it was recorded and edited daily and broadcast each night by Resonance Extra. Visit all three Lubberland excursions here.
