Past Event

This event was on Thu 14 Jan, 3pm

A collaborative performance between artist John Macedo and participants from local secondary schools exploring the tensions between analogue and digital sound making.

This performance is inspired by the exhibition Luke Fowler and Mark Fell: Computers and Cooperative Music-Making (23 October 2015-7 February 2016), which looks at how the use of computers began to shape music-making through experimentation with unfamiliar techniques.

About the artist

John Macedo is a sound artist from London. He has incorporated everything from acoustic instruments and environmental sound to analogue and computer synthesis into his recorded works, live performances and sound installations.

He has a pluralistic approach which reveals the ephemeral and hidden potential in all sounds, environments and technologies, often in intimate, immersive and intuitive ways. He performs solo and in collaboration with other musicians on modular synthesizer and custom-made software and electronics.
