Interdisciplinary artists Charles Hayward, Simona Sharafudinov and Thomas Stone present new sound from inside the Gallery’s Foyer.

Charles Hayward presents his ongoing improvised ritual 30 MINUTE SNARE DRUM ROLL which takes a basic drum technique and extends it into an epic acoustic space.

Using a collage of choreographed movement, sound and projected images, Simona Sharafudinov will present a new work _Denial_ inspired by the structures of authority and oppression.

Hear Thomas Stone’s post-classical / post-techno soundscapes that explore themes of memory, restraint, ritual and presence.
